Access to Fairy Creek Parking lot permanently closed

June 5, 2017 - 09:44

Access to the Fairy Creek parking lot is closed - permanently. 

This is due to pressure from Ministry of Highways, with concern for the ever-growing number of people making dangerous turns into that area, and the number of people pulling back out onto the highway. Also, a number of people have been parking indiscriminately all over the bridge site, damaging the paving, the trail shoulder, and the intended planting areas.

Please do not park in the area - if you do so you will be blocking both the trail and the emergency access route.

There are still three great options for accessing this area:

(1) Park at the Visitor Centre, which has a safe left-turn lane, lots of parking and a trailhead;
(2) Park at the pull-out on Cedar Avenue, there is space for vehicles there; or
(3) Ride your bike! The beautiful new bridge now makes this a safe, fun and healthy option!

Trees and bushes are due to be planted in the next week.

Thanks to everyone for their understanding.
