Parks Update - November 26

Chaster House and Chaster Park remain closed at this time. This area suffered significant damage
during the recent floods and are not safe to access.

Despite numerous appeals from the SCRD, the public is still accessing trails in Cliff Gilker Park. SCRD
staff have surveyed some parts of the park and there are a number of bridges that are structurally
unsafe and have been closed off. Images of one of these bridges is below. These closures are for the
safety of the public.

Members of the public continue to park their vehicles in front of the main access gate. This gate is required not only for access by SCRD staff and contractors, but also BC Emergency Health Services as Cliff Gilker Park is used as a landing zone for Air Ambulance. Vehicles parked here may be towed.

Recycling Centres

Due to the unprecedented flooding and disruption to transportation, Recycle BC has informed the SCRD and depot operators throughout BC that they will be temporarily suspending collection of glass and Styrofoam. Thank you for your help by holding onto these materials until they can be accepted for recycling again. The other depot recycling materials are unaffected at this time.
