The storm surge has affected numerous waterfront areas of West Vancouver, especially the seawall from Ambleside to Dundarave which includes the parks, John Lawson playground, the Spirit Trail through Ambleside and all piers located in those parks. It was announced by the District of West Vancouver that public shall refrain from visiting those areas until the officials complete a comprehensive damage assessment and complete a clean-up this afternoon. The Stanley Park seawall has been closed from Third Beach to Lions Gate Bridge. It was stated by The Vancouver Park Board that gates were closed at almost 9:30 a.m. on Monday for the sake of public safety. It added that hopefully the seawall will be reopened for the public again when the tides retreat this afternoon.
