Our Parks - conditions at a glance

Visitors must follow these guidelines or use at your own risk:

  • Practice physical distancing by staying two metres (six feet) apart
  • Stay on trails, stepping off only to allow others to pass
  • Yield to oncoming trail users when crossing bridges and boardwalks
  • Do not gather or arrange to meet family, friends or other groups
  • Visitors must limit group sizes to no more than 10 people from your COVID-19 social circle
  • Visitors in groups larger than 10 people must maintain physical distancing of at least two metres apart
  • Keep pets on leash and clean up after them
  • Do not litter
  • Take all trash with you when leaving the property
  • Be mindful of wildlife and plant-life
  • Do not trespass on private property next to CVC trails
  • Respect the instructions provided by our dedicated staff
  • Bring your own hand sanitizer as there are limited hand-washing facilities available.

CVC is asking visitors to select the property closest to them to limit unnecessary travel. Staff will be limiting the number of visitors at each property to ensure safe physical distancing. Visitors are asked to limit their stay to ensure everyone can enjoy an experience in nature. Visitors should be prepared to turn back if a property is full.
