Visiting the BGNlab

The BGNlab is located in downtown Brantford in Grand River Hall on the ground floor at 171 Colborne Street.   We are open to the community for special events - the best way to learn about these is through our Facebook Group or Twitter feed. 


Where do I Park?

There are several places to park in downtown Brantford within walking distance of the BGNlab.

There is limited on-street parking available throughout the city's core. However, these parking spaces are only available for two hours at a time until 6pm most days and are often occupied.  In addition, they do not allow re-parking within 5 hours of the original parking window.  Evenings are easier for parking on downtown street.  Instead, BGNlab suggests that visitors use the municipal parking lots located within downtown Brantford.

The most convenient parking area is the Market Centre Parkade, located on 59 Icomm Drive. This is accessable from Icomm drive which is located down the hill from BGNlab. Parking rates are $1.00/hour with an $8.00 daily maximum. Saturdays and Sundays are free!  Note - while the parking garage is under construction, the entrance is around the west side; look for the detour signs.

There are other municipal lots located throughout the downtown core. For more information on areas to park please refer to the city of Brantford's municipal parking lot page.

It's locked!  How do I get in?

Ring the bell.  There are doorbells at both of the outside entrances, and this will let us know to come out and let you in.
