Illegally dumped garbage at Sunnybrae Park has prompted the regional district to shut its gate until the spring.
The Columbia Shuswap Regional District reports that over the past few weeks, their parks co-ordinators have had to remove multiple bags of household garbage left in the park’s parking lot. Subsequently, the CSRD has chosen to close and lock the gate to the parking lot.
“It isn’t our preference to close and lock the gate to the park; however, in the past couple of years, this seems to work to curtail this illegal activity,” reports Ryan Nitchie, CSRD team leader of community services.
Sunnybrae Park remains open for public use, only the gated parking will be closed.
