  • Closure - Construction Survey of Grassi Lakes Day Use Area and Goat Creek/Ha Ling Parking Area

      August 10, 2020

      • Effective Date: August 10th – August 11th
      • Where: Grassi Lakes Day Use Area Parking Lot, Grassi Overflow Parking Lot, Grassi Climber’s Lot along Whiteman’s Pond & Goat Creek/Ha Ling Trailhead Parking Lot
      • Why:  Grassi Lakes, Goat Creek and Ha Ling experience some of the highest levels of visitation in the Kananaskis Region and are desperately in need of some upgrades, such as paving the lots, additional  washroom buildings and increased signage for user education.  To accomplish this work Parks will be conducting construction surveys of the four parking areas that make up Grassi Lakes Day Use Area and Goat Creek/Ha Ling/EEOR Trailhead and these areas are required to be empty of people and vehicles while this occurs on August 10th and 11th.  There will also be workers and equipment in the area on August 6th and 7th

      All four parking lots will not be accessible to public on August 10th and 11th.

      Thank you for respecting the closures and your patience while we work on upgrading the site for your enjoyment.
