The Vancouver Park Board will be closing Stanley Park to all vehicles starting Wednesday, April 8th in an effort to reduce the number of people in the park and to enable physical distancing.

It is the latest in a series of measures the Park Board has taken in recent weeks to reduce the risk of the COVID-19 pandemic to the public.

The closure will be carried out Wednesday morning and will remain in place indefinitely. It will be implemented via physical barriers and signage at key access points to the park, supported by Park Rangers and the VPD. Digital traffic signs on Georgia St, English Bay, and the Stanley Park Causeway will alert motorists to the closure.

The Causeway will remain open.

    This is an unfortunate but necessary step as I witnessed a lot of really bad driving behaviour on the weekend. Lot of crowding of cars and cars trying to squeeze out the bicycles and cars stopping in the middle of the road to take pictures. Seems to be a lot of people from out of town coming into visit and some of them not being particularly respectful of the space.

    This was not needed. Drove through the park one day before. It was not busy. Not very many cars driving through park. The people that did stop, stopped on the side of the road not in the middle of it. Seawall was not even busy. Lots of space to keep your distance. Vancouver is dumb.
