MacMillan Provincial Park, also known as Cathedral Grove, is world-renowned for its giant old-growth Douglas Firs, which attract approximately 500,000 visitors annually. Most visitors arrive by vehicle, park along Highway 4 and cross the highway to visit both sides of the park.
The Cathedral Grove Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Study is designed to work collectively with park visitors, Indigenous communities, law enforcement and governing partners to find solutions to ongoing safety and traffic concerns surrounding parking and pedestrian movements along Highway 4.
During two rounds of engagement, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure received many responses from park users, area residents and environmental groups on potential options to improve safety and access to Cathedral Grove.
The ministry will use that feedback to develop solutions to improve safety and capacity for visitors at Cathedral Grove in MacMillan Provincial Park, while protecting the environmental, social and cultural values associated with the park.
