The Lions Park spray deck opens today, May 18, two weeks ahead of schedule.

The Rotary Campsite and Bear Paw RV Park are now open for camping. 

The Bear Paw Par 3 Golf Course is also open daily. 

Washrooms at the Lions Park and Centre 2000 both opened on-schedule on May 7.

The Crystal Lake Washroom Facility is scheduled to open June 1st.  Portable washrooms will stay in place until the facility is opened.  

Muskoseepi Park Updates

Water levels in the Bear Creek and Bear Creek Reservoir continue to be monitored by City staff following the flooding that occurred at the end of April.

The public is advised all natural pathways along the creek remain temporarily closed as a safety precaution due to high water levels, fast moving water and potentially unstable banks. The public are encouraged to stay on asphalt trails when visiting Muskoseepi Park.

A portion of the Canfor natural trail has been fenced off and permanently closed. The closure is due to an eroding creek bank in recent years. At this time, the erosion is at a level that poses a risk for those using the trail. The Canfor natural trail is located north of 84 Avenue and east of the Canfor mill.

The City of Grande Prairie would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Victoria Day long weekend.
