Boaters wanting to get out on to Alouette Lake will have to wait a bit until it rains and the lake level rises. Currently, the water level is so low that the boat launch can’t be used until the water level rises significantly, Alouette Parks said Thursday.
The recent warm weather had its upside however, allowing parks management to open Golden Ears Park Road on Thursday, with Gold Creek campground still open for winter camping. The park is still operating on winter hours, so day users need to exit the park 5:30 p.m. Regular summer hours start on April 1.
After a miserable February, late winter and early spring is offering another extreme with arid weather and record high temperatures in Metro Vancouver.
