Oliver Road Closed to Vehicles starting JULY 08<div class="ExternalClass3BDB92D63ECF45C5B01198E2E137BA6E"><p>​Oliver Road in Minnekhada Regional Park will be 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, a reviews of previous road closures, and the high potential for negative human-bear interactions. The park remains open and accessible via the Quarry Road entrance.</p><p>Visitors are reminded that bears are wild, unpredictable and can run faster than humans over any type of ground.<br>• If you see a bear, stay back 100 metres. Never approach a bear; change your route or plans to avoid them.<br>• If you encounter a bear, stay calm and slowly back away.<br>• If you encounter a bear along Oliver Road, be prepared to retrace your route if on foot or bicycle.</p><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 other areas within the park.<br></p></div>True
