Heavy rains cause landslide in Stanley Park, closing part of seawall

A long section of Vancouver’s famed seawall will be closed to users for a time while crews deal with a landslide in Stanley Park caused by heavy rains.

According to a Tweet from the park board, “major debris” has slid across the seawall’s path near Siwash Rock, which is the northwestern point of the park.

As a result, the seawall is closed from Siwash Rock to Prospect Point.

An engineer will be brought in to assess the stability of the area.

The seawall will remain closed indefinitely as a result.
