City to Close Connaught Hill Park on Canada Day
Prince George, B.C. – Thinking of heading to Connaught Hill Park on Canada Day? Well, think again.
Today the City of Prince George says the park will be closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic all day July 1 in preparation for Canada Day fireworks at 11 that night.
“Residents are further advised not to try to go up the hill to view the fireworks or the set up,” says senior communications officer Mike Kellett. “The gate to the park will be closed and signs will be posted at several locations to discourage visitors.”
He adds “there will also be volunteers on-site ready to escort would-be onlookers back down the hill.”
Kellett says the park will reopen on Sunday, July 2 at 9 a.m.
