Free Parking in Singapore (2022): A Thrifty Driver's Guide to Car Parks With Free Parking

profileMing Feng

Do you dread looking at the parking fees every time you exit a shopping mall?

Well, you’re not alone.

Owning a car is already expensive, coupled with skyrocketing petrol prices and Certificate of Entitlement (COE), topping up for parking really adds on a burden.

If you’ve been budgeting diligently, good for you.

To help you lift some of these burdens, we’ve compiled a list of free parking lots in Singapore!

Note: The information is accurate as of 14 April 2022 and is subject to change by the venue without prior notice. Let us know, too, if there’re new lobangs out there.

You should know by now that free things don’t come by easily.

Free All-Day car parks are usually located in more secluded areas, and you may need to take a 10 to 15mins walk from the car park to your final destination.

Free Lunch Hour Parking

Unless you’ve been meal-prepping when you’re in the office, you would likely head out for lunch.

There are places where parking is free during lunch hours and you’ll usually find them at shopping malls or heartland hubs.

But…you will have to squeeze with the lunch crowd!

Free Parking At Shopping Malls

Singapore is a cosmopolitan city surrounded by shopping malls.

We can pop by to hang out, buy groceries or simply have a meal in malls and once we hit a minimum spend, we can get free parking.

Thankfully, most of the minimum spends are between $20 and $50, and if you’re not alone, a visit to a restaurant could easily hit the amount.

Free HDB Parking

Lastly, did you know that HDB offers Free Parking Scheme (FPS) at various HDB car parks on Sundays and public holidays?

Under the HDB FPS, you can enjoy free parking from 7am to 10:30pm on Sundays and public holidays at most HDB car parks. Note that this does not apply to parking lots reserved for season parking holders.

You should look out for the orange sign plate installed on the Supplementary sign plates like this:

Source: HDB

If there is no orange sign plate, this means that free parking is not available. You can also use HDB’s Centralised Map to locate the nearest FPS car park.

FYI: These lots are marked by red or bicoloured (red-and-white) lines.
