Cultus Lake Park Bylaw Fines Increased

Cultus Lake, B.C. – The Cultus Lake Park Act was amended by the Provincial Government of British Columbia in the spring of 2019. One of the many changes approved by the Province is an increase in fines for bylaw infractions. The amount has increased to a maximum of up to $2,000, from the previous $50 – which had been in place since the 1930s.

Cultus Lake Park staff reviewed the bylaw fines in other municipalities to ensure that the Park’s fines would be comparable. Staff then submitted the recommendations to the Board, which reviewed the changes and voted to increase the fines, which are now in full effect. The revised bylaws can be found at https://www.cultuslake.bc.ca/bylaws/. The Board encourages everyone who lives, works and visits Cultus Lake Park to take the time to review the bylaws and ensure that they adhere to them while in the Park.

The Cultus Lake Park bylaw compliance and enforcement officers and staff are committed to helping to educate the community on the bylaws. They understand that some people may not realize that they are breaking a bylaw. A bylaw compliance and enforcement officer’s first response, where possible, is to inform the person of the infraction so that they can immediately make adjustments to comply with the bylaw.

Said Joe Lamb, Cultus Lake Park Board Chair: “We want our community and visitors to the Park to be safe. Bylaws help to do that.” He added: “The bylaw compliance and enforcement officers don’t want to give out tickets that result in fines. No one – including the Board and staff – wants this. The increased fines are in place as a deterrent to bad behaviour – behaviour that could put the safety or security of people or property at risk.”

For those who feel that they have received a fine that is unwarranted and want to dispute the ticket, information can be found here: http://fvbylaw.ca/.

New Location for Summer Farmers’ Market at Cultus Lake Park

The 2019 Summer Farmers’ Market at Cultus Lake Park has a new location. It will be held at the Community Barn in the Cultus Lake Park Plaza (beside Frosty’s). This popular weekly event runs each Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from June 29 to August 31, 2019.

The Summer Farmers’ Market offers visitors a range of locally sourced items to choose from – including fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods, craft beer, small batch whiskey and vodka, meats, cheeses, herbs, flowers, handmade soaps, essential oils, jewellery and much more. Each week will bring some regular (and favourite) vendors – and a few new ones to try! Live music at the market makes the experience even better. (Dancing is encouraged!)

Said Joe Lamb, Cultus Lake Park Board Chair: “The new location for the Summer Farmers’ Market makes it easier to check it out and to pick up some items for a picnic on the beach or for dinner. The Plaza offers free parking for up to two hours – just enter your license plate into the meter.” He added: “Each week, the market is a bit different which encourages people to come often. The market is yet another reason that Cultus Lake Park is such a popular place for both locals and visitors.”

Cultus Lake Golf Club – A Great Community Partner

Not only is Cultus Lake Golf Club the place to go for all things golf – it also has great food! Legends Bistro at the Lake – at the course – offers delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and they are open year-round. And the course is immaculately maintained and has been designed to maximize the grounds. It is a beautiful place for a round of golf, for practicing your shots at the driving range, or to have a few drinks or a meal. It really is something special.

If you haven’t been to the Cultus Lake Golf Club recently, you haven’t seen their new (and awesome!) Toptracer Driving Range golf experience. It is winning rave reviews from golfers and non-golfers alike and it really is off the hook. There is nothing like it around. In fact, it is only one of three locations in Canada – and the only one in the Lower Mainland – where you can use this leading-edge technology.

Toptracer is a technology that uses cameras and monitors to track your shots, and it gives you games to play at different levels of expertise. Along with Cultus Lake Golf Club’s Toptracer Driving Range, there are also the Lounge Bays. This is a whole different level of fun. The Lounge Bays are perfect for bringing along friends or family who maybe aren’t that into golf – the lounge makes it so much fun for everyone! Sit back in the comfy seating and order up some appetizers and a drink from one of Cultus Lake Golf Club’s incredible staff – and you will have an amazing time.

The team members at Cultus Lake Golf Club are also great community partners. They are always ready to lend a hand, contribute to local community events, and get involved. For Cultus Lake Day, they have provided some amazing prizes. These include four exceptional prize package draws. Each prize includes:

  • Two 18-hole green fees, valid anytime
  • One 18-hole power cart rental
  • Two Toptracer Driving Range standard bay certificates
  • Four buckets of balls
  • One $25 Legend’s gift card

Everyone knows someone who would love to win one of these four prize packs! A big shout-out to Cultus Lake Golf Club – the perfect place to golf, dine and hang out. Thank you for your support of Cultus Lake Day!
