Knox Mountain Park accessible by road again
The road leading to the summit of Knox Mountain Park will re-open to vehicle traffic starting April 1.
With the exception of sanctioned event closures, Knox Mountain Drive will be opened to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday to Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday during the warm seasons.
As spring arrives in the next few weeks, park users are being reminded that all city parks, including City Park, Waterfront Park and the Parkinson, Rutland and Mission Recreation Parks, as well as Knox Mountain are smoke-free. Smoke-free zones include everything within park boundaries – including parking lots, pathways and the entrances to buildings.
The smoke-free bylaw was established in February 2011 to help reduce the risk of fire and associated littering from improperly disposed cigarette butts in parks and on beaches.
