Effective Friday, March 27 at midnight vehicle access is temporarily suspended at access points to Alberta’s provincial parks and recreation areas for recreation purposes until further notice.
If a car is required to access a park or recreation area, do not go. Please do not leave vehicles on the side of the road or on private property. Walking, hiking, biking, horseback riding and off-highway vehicle use are still permitted on designated trails and users are reminded to practice physical distancing.
The restrictions are in place to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus and are the same restrictions that are currently in place at national parks.
Additionally, visitor services are suspended, and all facilities, including washrooms, are closed.
Now is not the time to visit our provincial parks or recreation areas. If you have plans to visit one of these areas in the coming days, please cancel your plans.
We recognize this news is disappointing to our avid park visitors and recreationists. The COVID-19 virus is serious and we encourage Albertans to stay home and to go for a walk in their neighborhood - remembering to practice physical distancing (remaining two metres apart from others) at all times.
The safety of our parks visitors, staff and volunteers and minimizing the spread of COVID-19 is our top priority.
This is about everyone’s safety and wellbeing and we hope Albertans will comply. Enforcement officers will be doing routine checks in provincial parks and recreation areas to support education and awareness with the public on the temporary closure. Officers can issue fines for non-compliance if required. Officers will also issue fines for littering.
The vehicle restriction will be in effect until we are confident the health and public safety risk from COVID-19 is reduced.
