Oliver Road Closed (to vehicles)<div class="ExternalClass68485BD56C0A44DD823EEEEFCEF7DBA1"><p>​Bear activity along Oliver Road is currently high due to blueberry season. Due to the potential for negative bear-human interactions, the section of Oliver Road within Minnekhada Regional Park is closed to vehicles until further notice. Pedestrians and cyclists should avoid the area if possible. If you <strong>encounter</strong> a bear while on foot or bicycle along Oliver Road, be prepared to slowly back away and retrace your route. Visitors are reminded that bears are active throughout the park and to keep back at least 100 metres from these unpredictable animals</p></div>True
Trail repairs and temporary closure of Log Walk<div class="ExternalClass13170609DA684E3CA6F972778EB85188"><p>Work is anticipated to start July 24, 2017 and take about six weeks. At some point, Log Walk will be temporarily closed for about two weeks so visitors should plan alternate routes. All other trails will remain open but visitors should be prepared for delays and to encounter construction equipment and crews.  Please follow posted safety signs. For more information, call Metro Vancouver at 604-520-6442.</p></div>True
Bear Safety Reminder<div class="ExternalClassDD42CC6C26274F7E8FFE0306CEBBBA84"><p>​Bears are now active. Wild and unpredictable, bears can run faster than humans over any type of ground. If you <em>see </em>a bear, stay back 100 metres. Bears that become comfortable near people and vehicles, can be more dangerous to humans or may be destroyed or struck by cars. To keep bears wild and visitors safe:<br>• Never approach a bear<br>• Change your route or plans to avoid bears </p><p>If you <em>encounter </em>a bear, stay calm and slowly back away. If you <em>encounter </em>a bear along Oliver Road, be prepared to retrace your route if on foot or bicycle; remain in your vehicle if driving. </p><p>Negative bear-human interactions may result in closure of some areas of the park.</p></div>True
