Statement from Cultus Lake Park re:

All Cultus Lake Park Parking Lots Closed as of 12:01 a.m., Sunday, March 22, 2020

Effective at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, March 22, 2020, all Cultus Lake Park parking lots will be closed with the gates locked. Any vehicles left in the parking lots will be subject to a fine and removal. The parking lots will be closed until further notice. The parking lot at the Cultus Lake Park Plaza will remain open for those accessing local businesses.

In addition, the Cultus Lake Park boat launch (at the south end of Sunnyside Boulevard) will also be closed effective March 22, 2020 at 12:01 a.m.

The Cultus Lake Park staff and Board continue to monitor the rapidly developing situation regarding COVID-19 closely. The health and safety of our team, our Board, our community members and the public are a priority.

The closure of the parking lots is being done to ensure that health authority direction regarding social distancing is met in Cultus Lake Park.

We are and will continue to follow the direction of the federal and provincial governments and health authorities. This is a fast-moving situation and we are getting updates from government and health authorities daily – sometimes several a day.

We understand that the decision to close the parking lots may cause frustration or disappointment for some; however, this is being done to support of the overall health and safety of our community and the public. We will continue to follow developments regarding COVID-19 and keep you informed of any further changes regarding the operations of Cultus Lake Park.

This is an important time for all British Columbians and Canadians to come together in support of others on a local and global level. As a team and as individuals, we are committed to doing everything we can to flatten the curve and not allow this serious virus to spread.


  • Thank you for keeping our neighbourhood and families safe!!! The lake seems like a great place to be while practicing safe social distancing but it puts us all living here at risk.

  • I feel very strongly about keeping not only our community but our country safe. We all have to do our part. This is not a test. This is very real. We need to man the kiosk and turn anyone away who does not live here. Just because you e close the parking lots does not mean people who are not “getting” the seriousness of this situation will still come to our park and park in the trees, our streets etc. The school parking lot is still open. Let’s get serious about this please. It’s not just about saving us. It’s about saving the world. Let’s also shut down Sunnyside campground until this is over. Really people. Listen to the mandate STAY HOME!
