Boat Launches Reopen Today

Release date: 
June 19, 2020

UPDATE JUNE 25: Due to high water, the boat launches have been closed until further notice. Read full release here.

Kamloops BC – Effective today, the City will reopen the boat launches at Pioneer Park, McArthur Island, and Thompson Drive.
The City closed the boat launches on May 28 due to the rising river levels, however as water levels start to recede, boaters may begin to access the boat launches again this morning.  
Anyone on the water is asked to use extreme caution and travel at idling speeds to prevent bank erosion. Residents are reminded to still use caution around waterways, culverts, and riverbanks and are asked to stay as far back from the banks as possible. Banks may be unstable as high-flowing water can cause erosion under the visible surface.
