Goose Spit Park: Parking Lot Upgrades, and Winter Storm Damage Repairs

During April, excavation contractors with be conducting parking lot upgrades, sensitive ecosystem rehabilitation, and getting the park ready for the Summer Beach Fire program.  Work zones will be identified with signs, barriers, and ribbon.  Please stay clear of work zones during this time, to ensure a safe and efficient work place.  Your cooperation is appreciated.

Watch Where you Step

The sun is bringing lots of critters out from hiding. As you enjoy the arrival of spring in the parks watch for newts, slugs, centipedes and snakes along the trails.

Nymph Falls Trails and Parking Lot Closed until April for Construction of Accessible Trail and Access Route

The CVRD has closed the main trails to the falls and a portion of the parking lot until mid-April to allow construction of a 455 m long access route at Nymph Falls Park along the existing Mid-Line Trail.  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:
