About This Park
Established Date: March 16, 1956
Area: 175 hectares
Representation: The landscape surrounding Yard Creek Park is part of the Interior wetbelt characterized by cedar and hemlock forest and lush undergrowth.
The park contains a variety of bird species including American dippers. These fascinating little birds dive into the icy waters of the creek and “fly” along under the water in search of water insects. Watch for them on the rocks along the creek.
Remember fires, wood cutting & vehicles are NOT permitted on the Nature Trails and can lead to fines under the Park Act.
The Yard Creek campground is managed by the Yard Creek Park Caretaker (Columbia Shuswap Regional District).
