A portion of Glen Canyon Regional Park is open again now that water levels in Powers Creek have dropped.

The trail from Brown Road south to the parking area off Gellatly Road had been closed since April 20th because of flooding.   Minor damage to the trail has been repaired and the area is again accessible for visitors.

While Mission Creek water levels have also dropped slightly over the past week, for safety reasons the underpasses along the Mission Creek Greenway at the Casorso Road bridge and on the south side of Mission Creek at the Gordon Drive bridge remain closed until further notice due to the unpredictability of the spring runoff.

Pedestrians and cyclists of the Greenway are asked to use caution and only cross Casorso Road and Gordon Drive when it is safe.  Motorists are also asked to watch for Greenway users who may be crossing the road in these areas while the underpasses are closed.

Regional Parks staff is monitoring creek levels along the entire length of the Mission Creek Greenway Regional Park recreational corridor and throughout other regional parks.

People are reminded that water levels in area creeks may rise unexpectedly and they, children and pets should stay safely back from creek banks, which may be slippery or subject to erosion from the spring runoff.

Boaters and those using Okanagan Lake boat launches are advised to watch for floating debris that may enter the lake as a result of the runoff.
