If you plan to visit the Oyster River Nature Park over the next month, you’re going to see some trail closures. 

The Comox Valley Regional District is working on a new water production well to increase capacity for the Black Creek/Oyster Bay (BCOB) Water System.

Work is expected to get underway this Wednesday and will continue until mid-September. 

The CVRD owns and operates the BCOB Water System, which treats and distributes water to properties north of the Oyster River in Electoral Area D of the SRD and south of the Oyster River in Puntledge – Black Creek (Electoral Area C) of the CVRD.  

Partial trail closures will be in place over a three-day period from August 26th-28th and an additional three-day period the second week of September. 

Signs will be posted to indicate which trails must be avoided. 

For public safety, the Strathcona Regional District is asking park users to travel on open trails only until the work is complete.
