Parks and Recreation

Regional Parks

Blackfoot Regional Park is now open for camping, on a first come first “pick” basis. Any questions while camping, please check with our caretaker on site!

Montney Centennial Regional Park, Sundance Park, Spencer Tuck Regional Park, and Iver Johnson Community Park are open for day-use activities only (overnight camping is prohibited).

Minaker River Regional Park is open for overnight use. Please use caution when accessing this park.

Visitors are asked to keep physical distance by staying at least 2 metres (6 feet) away from others as well as regularly washing or sanitizing hands. Facilities are not maintained daily, so it is recommended that Park Users bring a ‘Clean Trip Kit’. Your ‘Clean Trip Kit’ should include hand sanitizer, protective gloves, toilet paper, and any other items to keep you safe and sanitized.
