Temporary Closure of Riparian Park due to fire risk

Effective immediately, Keremeos Fire Chief, Jordy Bosscha, has ordered the temporary closure of Riparian Park to mitigate fire risk.


Riparian Park is a natural habitat that is intentionally not maintained with irrigation or mowing. During periods of drought the grass can become very dry. As a precautionary measure, Riparian Park will be closed to the public until the risk of fire has diminished.


Memorial and Pine Parks will stay open to the public, as usual.
