Regional parks open for short day trips, physical distancing required

After a long winter, the regional district is pleased to confirm that many of its regional parks are open for the season as of today. There are 11 sites within the regional district park system which provide residents opportunities for recreation and space to enjoy the natural beauty of our area.

Parks are day use only with no overnight camping permitted.

Regional district reminds everyone that for the safety and comfort of all park users and to align with public health guidelines, visitors should keep their time at the parks short and maintain a minimum distance of six feet away from other users and refrain from contacting gates, fences and other surfaces with their hands.

As ground conditions and snow melt vary for our parks, some may have areas cordoned off for visitor safety.

The regional district is pleased to provide our parks for residents as a place to go and enjoy open spaces, but encourages visitors to be responsible with park use.

The 11 parks within the regional district parks system are:

• Berman Lake

• Cedarside

• George Hicks

• Giscome-Portage/Huble Homestead (opening June 1)

• Harold Mann

• John Dahl

• Koeneman

• Kristian Winther

• McMillan Creek

• Ness Lake

• Wilkins
