Park road closed to vehicles starting JUNE 7<div class="ExternalClass2D6F639A42A64A5EB852BFEC7A432D51"><div>Oliver Road in Minnekhada Regional Park will be closed to vehicles to keep bears and people safe. This closure is expected to last about four months and is based on bear activity in the immediate area, developing blueberry crops, and the high potential for negative human-bear interactions. The park remains open and accessible via the Quarry Road entrance.</div><div><br></div><div>Visitors are reminded that bears are wild, unpredictable and can run faster than humans over any type of ground.</div><div>• If you see a bear, stay back 100 metres. Never approach a bear; be prepared to retrace your route to avoid bears.<br></div><div>• If you encounter a bear, stay calm and slowly back away.<br></div><div><br></div><div>Bears that become comfortable near people can be more dangerous to humans or may be destroyed. Negative bear-human interactions may result in closures of other areas within the park.<br></div></div>True
