The other Car Parks in St Ives require a little more planning due to the hilly nature of our beautiful town. These car parks are; Barnoon – TR26 1JF, Park Avenue – TR26 1QE, Trenwith (St Ives Leisure Centre) – TR26 1DDand St Ives Rugby Club- TR26 1ER.
Barnoon Car Park is situated just behind Porthmeor Beach, adjacent to the Tate gallery. It is one of the closer car parks in this section, however, it has a steep decent of steps leading towards the town, with a slightly longer alternative route that requires walking down a moderate hill.
Park Avenue is again considered a little closer to the centre and therefore is in high demand. However, the shortcut into town is a steep set of steps which are not an ideal choice for everybody.
Trenwith Car Park can hold up to 759 cars in the summer, and it’s one of the easiest to access if you are arriving to St Ives by car. There’s a higher chance of securing a parking spot here for either a long or short stay and you don’t need to be put off the longer walk into town as there are frequent busses to and from the car park and the town square.
St Ives Rugby Club car park is approximately a 15-20- minute walk into St Ives and it runs a bus service with buses running up to every 15 minutes in the summer.
