BYNG—The GRCA will reopen additional programs and amenities in its Grand River Parks beginning in July.
Starting July 10, 2020 select Grand River Parks including Byng Island conservation area will offer limited overnight camping.
To support this, the GRCA camping reservation system reopened on July 6 for online bookings only.
While more washrooms will open in campgrounds, there will be no shower facilities or group camping available this year.
In addition to governmental and public health guidelines, there are a number of considerations the GRCA is taking into account when making decisions on which programs and amenities it is able to reopen, and the associated timelines. These include health and safety, staffing, managing capacity, enforcement challenges, as well as financial considerations.
Below is an overview of what’s open and closed in Grand River Parks this summer:
