Kilby shuts down amid COVID-19 pandemic

One of many provincial parks shutting down for the time being

Kilby Park – along with the cafe, museum and gift shop – are now closed, according to statement released on Friday.

“We have closed the Kilby park as a precaution to help ‘flatten the curve’ on the spread of COVID-19. This includes the campground, day use and boat launch areas,” said Jo-Anne Leon, Kilby Historic Site executive director. “We are also following other Provincial B.C. Parks in suspending our reservation system until at least April 30.”

This follows a string of closures across multiple industries and areas due to COVID-19 concerns as the province waits the pandemic out.
