The Creswick Road Car Park will be free until February 17.
The City of Ballarat has confirmed the car park would not be charging vehicle users until next Monday.
A spokesperson said the car park would be free while fencing works took place in the area.
The 300-space facility has been little used since it opened last November.
THE CAR PARK SHORTLY AFTER IT OPENED:
For weeks following its opening, no cars parked within the site.
The car park was funded by the state government as part of a $2million investment to deliver 1,000 extra car parks in the system.
Usage did go up when the car park went free in December and January as the council began its roll-out of its Smarter Parking Plan.
There were extended soil reparation works, and officers decided to change the scope of the work from a gravel surface to a bitumen-sealed one.
The car park replaces 275 spaces that used to be in place surrounding Civic Hall. Those spaces were removed as construction at the Ballarat GovHub get under way.
The boom gates were down at the Creswick Road site when The Courier visited on Tuesday.
