ALERT: Significant snowfall expected

Significant snowfall is occuring and expected to continue on Bowen Island. Crews are plowing and salting roads in the following order of priority:

-Main roads and bus routes
-Secondary roads, once the snow fall has stopped
-Third-priority roads, after the snow fall has stopped and all other main and secondary roads are passable

Please make room for plows. Vehicles parked on narrow roadsides make it difficult or impossible for plows to get through. There are many dead-end roads on Bowen. If a plow is unable to turn around at the end of a road, it can't clear the road.

Property owners are responsible for making sure the sidewalks next to their property are kept clear of snow and ice, to ensure the safe passage of pedestrians.

Parks

More information coming soon. Thank you for your patience while we update our website.

Metro Vancouver and Bowen Island Municipality both operate a number of parks throughout Bowen Island.

The mandate for the Parks Program is to maintain and build Bowen Island Municipality parks, trails, beaches, beach accesses, pedestrian right-of-ways, playing fields, greenways and open space in a manner that contributes towards a sustainable community.  Between May and August, two temporary Parks Crew employees provide the bulk of the maintenance with additional support from contractors and the core Public Works Crew.
