Within about a ten minute walk of the West Harbour we have the following parking locations (surface lot capacities are estimates based on visual inspection, indoor lot capacities were confirmed by the City's Parking System office):
That's a total of 4,766 parking spaces in the area bounded by King St on the south and James St on the east - and I may have missed some lots in the area.
The total is considerably less than the 6-7,000 spots proposed for the East Mountain stadium location, but the West Harbour is far more accessible by local and regional transit, walking and cycling as well as driving.
In addition, there are far more neighbourhood amenities in the area that attendees can enjoy before and after stadium events, which helps to spread out the traffic into and out of the area.
Update How could I have forgotten about Jackson Square? That's another 1,100 spots. (Thanks to F. Ward Cleat for pointing out my oversight.
