Trail closure on One Spot Trail

The One Spot Trail between Tsolum Spirit Park and the entrance to Heart of the Valley Farms is now open.  The trail was re-routed further away from the river and fencing has been installed to protect trail users from the eroded slope.

Morning Beach Park Stairs Closed

Due to recent storm events and wave action, more sloughing has occurred along the bottom of the bank beneath the stairs.  The stairs will be closed until further notice.  Thank you for your patience.


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 would also appreciate reports of bullfrogs you have heard or seen while visiting the parks.

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 or hear frogs that sound like a cow mooing please contact us:
