Places that are closed during the BC storm

Oct 15 2016, 4:27 am

If you haven’t seen the rain outside, then you’ve probably heard the wind.

The second of the three BC storms hit the coast today, as heavy showers and strong winds swept through Vancouver. Environment Canada says the winds will likely subside later tonight, but it’s only the calm before our third, and potentially most powerful storm.

Several places in Vancouver and the surrounding area have closed due to weather:

Vancouver outdoor playing fields

  • Closed since Friday afternoon

West End Farmers Market

  • Closed Saturday, October 15.

Trout Lake Farmers Market

  • Closed Saturday, October 15.

Vancouver golf courses, driving ranges, and pitch and putts

  • Closed Friday, October 14. All park board outdoor golfing facilities are affected.

Stanley Park Hallowe’en Ghost Train

  • Closed until Saturday, October 16. The train will re-open at 11 am on Sunday, October 16. Pre-purchased tickets can be exchanged for another day until October 31.

VanDusen Botanical Gardens

  • Closed for the weekend. Check their closure page for updates.

Grouse Grind

  • Closed since October 13. Public access will be reexamined after the storm subsides.

Grouse Mountain Skyride

  • Closed until the storm subsides.

Sea to Sky Gondola

More places may close as winds of up to 80 km/hr reach Vancouver Island and make their way to the mainland.
