Nob Hill Greenway Staircase Replacement (Goose Spit Park)

This September and October, the Nob Hill staircase between Goose Spit Park and Yates Road is being replaced. Visit the project page for alternate routes and more information.

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 the areas especially with pets and young children. For updated weather advisory information view the Government of Canada weather page.

Be Bear Aware

Seal Bay visitors are encountering bears on a daily basis particularly on the Coupland and Seal Flipper Loops. Avoid triggering a bear encounter by making noise as you hike, leashing your pet, staying on the trails and taking a friend. 

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:
