The Cultus Lake Park Community Hall sustained damages following the November 14, 2021 flooding events. Due to the significant amount of water that entered the building over the course of a three-week period, the community hall was closed to the public to ensure proper safety inspections could be completed.
It was determined that the structure of the building was secure, however the interior would require appropriate restoration. Large sections of drywall have been removed and replaced, along with full replacement of all flooring required throughout the hall.
Cultus Lake Park anticipates that the community hall will be reopened to the public in early spring 2022. We look forward to welcoming you back to begin hosting community events in the near future.
Contracted crews continue work at Sunnyside Campground to grind the logs and debris that collected along the foreshore following the November 14, 2021 flooding events. Debris and logs have been removed west of the boat launch and relocated to the east end of the campground for processing.
To ensure public safety the campground and foreshore will remain inaccessible to all residents and visitors until work has been completed. Please use extra caution in the area as crews will be transporting material out of the campground along Sunnyside Boulevard.
If you have any questions, please contact the park office at 604-858-3334 or email [email protected]. January 17, 2022.
Cultus Lake Park has partnered with the Fraser Valley Regional District to become a temporary pick-up location for flood recovery resources!
The Fraser Valley Regional District collaborated with the Red Cross to procure recovery kits for residents within Electoral Area H. Each kit is stocked with cleaning items that are essential in supporting the process of restoration after a flood within your residence. These containers also make a great addition to emergency kits in preparation for potential flooding in the future.
The recovery kits, guidebooks and information packages are available for pick-up at the Cultus Lake Park office Monday to Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm. Registration is not required to claim one of these kits. A reminder that the park office will be closed from Friday, December 24, 2021 returning to the office Tuesday, January 4, 2022.
