Stanley Park reopens, but all grass-playing fields in Vancouver closed

Oct 16 2016, 5:03 pm

The Vancouver Park Board says Stanley Park has reopened following a brief clean-up this morning that removed some fallen branches during yesterday’s anticipated wind storm.

This includes the reopening of the Stanley Park seawall, which was not damaged by any wave action. Vehicles and all buses are also running through the Stanley Park Causeway.

The Ghost Train at Stanley Park and Fright Nights at PlayLand will reopen tonight during their regular operating hours.

However, the Park Board has closed VanDusen Gardens and all water-soaked grass-playing fields across the city for the remainder of the weekend.

BC Ferries sailings

BC Ferries added two extra sailings on Sunday morning, to help travellers stranded in Vancouver and Victoria by Saturday’s storm cancellations.

BC Ferries cancelled all sailings between Vancouver Island and the mainland on Saturday afternoon, ahead of the storm fuelled by the remnants of Typhoon Songda.

Aside from the extra sailings, service is expected to resume as normal on Sunday.
