    Affected Areas
  • Partial Closure - Fish Creek Provincial Park Pathways

      • Effective Date: Friday, October 16, 2020
      • Where: Various areas within Fish Creek Provincial Park, including BUT NOT LIMITED TO Bebo Grove and Hull's Wood
      • Why: Localized flooding earlier in the year has compromised the integrity of several trails. Some repairs have been made others will require more time and resources to complete.

      Due to localized flooding significant pathway damage remains. Areas affected include Hull's Wood, Bebo Grove and areas in and around Bridge 3 and Bridge 9. Please watch for and obey signage, closures and detours.

  • Construction Advisory - Stream Changes Trail Construction and Detours

      September 1, 2020

      Effective Date: October 16, 2020 until further notice

      Where: Stream Changes Trail and connectors adjacent to Bow Valley Ranch

      Why: Construction activities and trail upgrades including replacement of yellow tactile warning pads. The main trail will be closed intermittently for construction access with detours in place. 

      • Heavy equipment and crews will be on site completing construction work. 
      • Please obey all posted signage, closures and detours.

  • Construction Advisory - McKinnon Flats Road Upgrade and Construction Closure

      August 31, 2020

      • Where: McKinnon Flats Road where it leaves Range Road 274 to the site parking area.
      • Why: The access road to the Bow River is steep and presents safety issues during wet or winter conditions. In addition, the road is not to current standards for larger vehicles including auto-trailer units (for boats) or potential emergency vehicle access (for water rescue). Alberta Environment and Parks will upgrade the McKinnon Flats road this fall to meet Alberta Transportation standards and construction is proposed to begin on August 31. To support construction efficiency and ensure public safety, the access road will be closed between August 31 and the end of November.

      Although the McKinnon Flats can be accessed from the Bow River, vehicle access will not be permitted to McKinnon Flats from Range Road 274 during construction. River users may use the site as a trip stop but will not be able to access the road and the parking area to launch or take out boats.

      Alternative public vehicle access points for the Bow River include Policeman’s Flats, Legacy Island and Johnson’s Island.

    Affected Areas
      McKinnon Flats Road
  • Closure - Marshall Springs Pathway

      • Effective Date: October 16, 2019 until further notice
      • Where: Local pathway between the Marshall Springs storm water pond and Bridge 5 
      • Why: Localized flooding caused by beaver activity has led to pathway damage.  As further repairs and maintenance including the removal of hazardous trees are required, the area is closed and should be avoided.  Please obey all signage and closures.  Note as snow and colder weather ensue some pathway hazards may be difficult to spot, travel with caution.
