Snow & Ice in Saanich Parks

It snowed in Saanich?

Snow clearing in a Park

We clear snow and ice from our municipal facility entrances and parking lots:

  • Police and Fire stations
  • Municipal Hall
  • Recreation Centres
  • Libraries
  • Larger municipal parks

The areas the Parks team clears may change based on conditions after each winter storm. It will usually be as follows:

  • First Priority – Fire Halls and Police Station
  • Second Priority – Municipal Hall, Recreation Centres and Libraries
  • Third Priority – Paved park parking lots and hard surface trails

Allow extra time for travel and wear appropriate foot wear to avoid slipping. Look out for freezing water and deep slush. Watch out for crews and equipment working. Try to park out of the way of snow ploughs.

The Saanich Roads crew takes care of snow clearing on roadways on a prioritized schedule. Did you know that property owners must clear snow from sidewalks in front of their properties?
