Village of Lions Bay closes all parks, public spaces over COVID-19 concerns

The Village of Lions Bay is asking people to stay away from its public spaces over concerns of COVID-19.

The village municipality – located on the shore of Howe Sound nestled in between West Vancouver and Squamish – has closed all of its beach parks, trails and open spaces such as parking lots, playgrounds and public washrooms, according to a press release issued March 25.

The decision was made because the village is struggling to comply with the orders of the provincial health officer which seek to restrict gatherings of people and maintain social distancing, according to the release.

“We have seen a sharp influx in groups of visitors coming to Lions Bay to recreate in our trails and tiny beach parks and causing us to exceed the public health orders and directives,” stated Mayor Ron McLaughlin, in the release.
