Update March 2022; Greenway Extension Works at Merchants Quay Car Park

Waterford Council are carrying out works in the car park over the next four months which will cause disruption to our operations. We will not be able to guarantee our usual availability of parking as a result.  Payment may be only possible via the parkpnp in certain sections of the car park at certain times due to the works. If you are unable to access a parking space, you can cancel your parkpnp booking and you will receive a full refund.
