Park road closed to vehicles. UPDATE: Park road will be open Sept 28.<div class="ExternalClass6744EC0E99C94F8F838D958924C11FE3"><p>Oliver Road in Minnekhada Regional Park is now closed to vehicles to keep bears and people safe. This closure is expected to last about three months and is based on bear activity in the immediate area, developing blueberry crops, and the potential for negative human-bear interactions. The park remains open and accessible via the Quarry Road entrance.  </p><p>Remember bears are wild, unpredictable and can run faster than humans over any type of ground. </p><ul><li>If you <strong>see </strong>a bear, stay back 100 metres and change your route or plans to avoid them. Never approach a bear.</li><li>If you <strong>encounter</strong> a bear, stay calm and slowly back away. </li><li>If you <strong>encounter</strong> a bear along the park road, be prepared to retrace your route if on foot or bicycle. </li></ul><p>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.</p></div>True
Minnekhada Lodge will be closed for maintenance Sept 01 - Oct 31True
