Cranbrook, BC (October 26, 2015) — Unstable railings on the two piers at Idlewild Park are the reason behind Public Works closing access to ensure public safety.

Public Works staff closed both accesses with plywood gates and installed warning signs late last week.

Plans are in place to completely replace both piers with steel structures, but that project will remain on hold until the dam work at Idlewild Lake is completed.
