We used credit card to pay. They did not take Amex but any Visa or Master Card would do. Also, we walked, so and it is in town, so you'd have to find a garage or street parking. The majority of garages and street parking are automated in the city and take cash or credit (including Amex). We never had to pay more than $10 Canadian for several hours of garage parking.
