Lookout Lake Park will be closed temporarily while the City undertakes required safety upgrades to the dam that holds the lake in place. 

To do this, the water level in the lake will need to be lowered temporarily. Pumping is expected to start Monday, September 14 and take approximately one week. Update: pumping was delayed and will now begin September 28.

Once the water level is lowered, work will begin to build up the rock materials on the slopes of the dam. Windley Contracting Ltd. has been hired to do this work, which is expected to continue for about two months. 

This project is made possible through funding from the UBCM Community Emergency Preparednes Fund 

After work on the dam is completed, there may be opportunities to consider adding some new features at the park, such as trail and beach improvements, seating or other amenities. 

Thank you for your patience while these important safety upgrades are completed.
