Canyon Park switches to day use only due to COVID-19

Camping will not be allowed due to this change.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and significant storm damage, there will be no camping this year at Canyon Park. There is an exception to honour previous bookings as long as the provincial government is allowing such events at that time.

Canyon Park is a non-profit society that offers several recreational opportunities and is located about 10 km east of Creston at 4725 Samuelson Road.

The park will remain open but there will be no league ball or Canada Day celebrations. Washrooms and showers will be closed except for the pit toilets. The equine arena, ball diamond, playground and pavilion picnic area will be open for drop-in day use only, with guests using the facilities at their own risk and following social distancing guidelines.

“It is not possible for us to physically disinfect the park facilities regularly. Thank you for your understanding as we all try to navigate the challenges presented to us this year. We hope to resume the park clean up in the fall, assuming the situation has improved. We aim to come back in full force for the 2021 year,” the Canyon Community Association said in a statement.
