Parks and Trails Master Plan

The Parks and Trails Master Plan is a planning tool to direct and guide the management of current and future parks and trails within the District of Sicamous for the next ten years. This masterplan identifies existing and proposed parks and trails within Sicamous, while also identifying the areas for improvement and maintenance. The masterplan outlines the existing policies and guidelines, current park supply and inventory of the existing parks and trails. In addition, the plan includes a summary of public engagement process, key findings, and recommendations.

Decriminalization & Public Parks

Following advocacy by many local governments, British Columbia's controlled substance possession exemption has been restricted to prohibit the possession of controlled substances from child-focuses spaces.

As of September 18, 2023, the decriminalization of controlled substances in BC will no longer apply within 15 metres of:

  • Playground play structures;
  • Spray parks or wading pools; and
  • Skate parks.

Additionally, District of Sicamous Council amended the Parks Regulation Bylaw in July of 2023 to prohibit the public consumption of decriminalized illicit drugs in the following park spaces.

  • River Front Nature Trail Park
  • Sicamous Beach Park
  • Finlayson Park
  • Shuswap Avenue Park
  • All designated Children's Play Areas
  • Beach Area, Tecumseh Road
  • Sicamous Dog Park
