Regional parks update

The Peace River Regional District says it is seeking advice from the province before opening regional parks for the camping season.

All provincial parks were closed in B.C. on April 8, to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus disease COVID-19. Camping is banned until May 31, and all parks, protected areas, conservancies, and recreation areas are closed to the public.

The regional district operates five regional parks, including two day-use parks and three overnight parks. The parks are currently closed for the winter, but usually open from mid-May through September.

"The Peace River Regional District values the safety of our residents and park guests above all else. We will be working closely with the Province to determine if and when it is safe for PRRD regional parks to open for the season."
