Site Information

  • This park is in direct proximity to the Alouette River. Rivers have fast moving currents so if you have small children or animals with you at the event, please keep your eyeballs glued to them at all times, especially when near the water.
  • No fire pits. Permission will be sought regarding using apropane brazier/fire pit subject to fire restrictions. If you have one you would like to use, please speak with the Event Steward first. Must be CSA approved.
  • Absolutely no garbage can be left behind. PLEASE leave the site cleaner than found it. If you pack it in, pack it out.
  • There is a Noise bylaw which states 10pm for quiet time. We need to be mindful that we are in a small valley and there are residents at the top of the hills. Sound is known to carry upwards here.
  • This is a public park. If you chose to imbibe, you MUST be discreet and are doing so at your own risk.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
