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.
