Dyke Road Park Revitalization Project

Park Closure Beginning May 23

May 8, 2024
The parking lot and viewing platform area at Dyke Road Park will close on May 23, 2024 as part of the complete park rebuild and shoreline restoration. Closure of the park and parking lot along Comox Road are required to properly dismantle the viewing platform and allow the K’ómoks Guardians and archaeologists to complete further archaeological investigations. The viewing platform will be recycled and taken to 19 Wing Comox to be used for training purposes.

The parking lot and viewing area are slated to be closed from May 23 until the fall of 2025 to coincide with the Sewer Conveyance Project. This project will bring a revitalized park space with new amenities for the community to enjoy.
