What’s New at Cultus Lake Park
Removal of English Ivy in Sunnyside Campground and Surrounding Green Spaces
On Saturday, October 16, 2021 the Cultus Lake Park Environmental and Public Areas Planning Committee partnered with the Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Society to remove invasive plant species in Sunnyside Campground and surrounding areas.
The group was joined by five volunteers from the Cultus Lake Park community to remove one of BC’s most prevalent invasive plant species, Hedera Helix. While this plant may be visually appealing, it causes a number of issues to the native trees and plants in the Park.
Hedera Helix, more commonly known as English Ivy, wraps itself around the host tree and burrows under the bark. This will cause fungus, decay and eventually will not allow the tree to continue healthy growth and development.
The Committee members, CLASS and volunteers throughout the community have dedicated many hours to the preservation and protection of the native plants and trees within the Park.
On behalf of the Cultus Lake Park Board and staff, we thank all who continue to volunteer time to maintain our beautiful greenspaces for future generations to come.
BC Hydro Street Light Replacement Project
At the beginning of November 2021, BC Hydro will begin the Street Light Replacement Project throughout the Cultus Lake Park community. The current high-pressure sodium (HPS) street lights within the community will be replaced with energy-efficient Light Emitting Diode’s (LED) in order to meet federal regulations.
The switch to LED street lights will help improve public safety by increasing visibility of sidewalks and roads at night with the warm whiter and more natural light. The bulbs use far less energy, are more reliable, last longer and are more sustainable.
The installation of the LED street lights is expected to be complete by mid-December with minimal impact on the local residents and businesses. BC Hydro does not expect to have to conduct a planned outage during this process, and do not expect access to roadways to be disrupted while crews are working.
