Weather Warnings and Advisories – Use Caution In Our Parks

During high winds keep out of the parks due to hazards with falling trees and branches. Keep away from water courses during extreme weather conditions such as storm tides, freezing and flooding. Do not cross pooling water on trails if you can’t see the trail surface as this may pose a risk of falling.
Always exercise caution when travelling these areas especially with pets and young children. For updated weather advisory information view the Government of Canada weather page.

Seal Bay Trail Upgrades: Don Apps Trail

The one section of retaining wall was rebuilt in December.  Additional work will be completed once the weather is less wet. The trail is open in the meantime.

Nymph Falls Accessible Trail and Access Route

The CVRD is proposing to construct a 455 m long access route at Nymph Falls Park along the existing Mid-Line Trail beginning January 28, 2019.  The access route is to provide multi-use access from the parking lot to the falls including closer access for emergency and service vehicles.  Learn more about this project.

Park Invasives

We are monitoring Eastern Grey Squirrels. Grey squirrels are an introduced species that may pose a threat to native squirrels and birds.

We are asking park visitors to report sightings to allow us to:

  • map the current distribution
  • determine the spread of these species
  • determine if action is required to protect native species.

If you spot a big bushy squirrel please contact us:
