Effective Friday, March 27 at midnight vehicle access is temporarily suspended at access points to Alberta’s provincial parks and recreation areas for recreation purposes until further notice. All grooming operations are now suspended.
Please DO NOT leave vehicles on the side of the road or on private property.
If a car is required to access a park or recreation area, do not go. Walking, hiking, biking, snowshoeing and skiing use are still permitted on CNCPP designated trails and users are reminded to practice physical distancing (at least 2 meters).
The restrictions are in place to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus and are the same restrictions that are currently in place at national parks. Additionally, visitor services are suspended, and all facilities, including washrooms, are closed.
The safety of our parks visitors, staff and volunteers and minimizing the spread of COVID-19 is our top priority.
Enforcement officers will be doing routine checks in provincial parks and recreation areas to support education and awareness with the public on the temporary closure. Officers can issue fines for non-compliance if required. Officers will also issue fines for littering. We ask for your cooperation to keep this site free of garbage. Improper disposal of garbage and waste has the potential to draw wildlife, like bears coming out of hibernation, and can create issues when we resume normal operations. If you pack it in, pack it out!
As we head into spring, please remember to carry your bear spray and know how to use it.
