Special Areas closes municipal parks, campgrounds, and rest areas effective April 1, 2020

As a part of our larger response to COVID-19, effective April 1, 2020, all Special Areas parks, campgrounds, and rest areas are closed to public access, including vehicle and foot access. In support of the aggressive public health measures recommended by the Province, these closures will remain in effect until further notice. We will provide updates on any changes to access or use as this situation continues to evolve.

We recognize this news is disappointing to many residents in the region; however, minimizing the spread of COVID-19 and the safety of our staff and visitors remains our priority. We appreciate your cooperation with these closures as we all #StayatHome to do our part to help reduce the spread and #FlattentheCurve.
