Manito Park Loop Drive to Remain Closed to Vehicles

The area of Manito Park between the Park Bench Café, Joel E. Ferris Perennial Garden, and Rose Hill has seen increased pedestrian activity over the years. To help ensure visitor safety, Parks & Recreation is removing thru-vehicle access to a small portion of the area.

All parking areas and trails will remain open and unchanged.

The short section of Loop Drive that runs east/west between the Park Bench Café and Rose Hill will become pedestrian only. Parking lots for Duncan Garden, the Gaiser Conservatory, the Ferris Garden, and Rose Hill will all remain accessible from 21st Ave.

The removal of thru-traffic in this active pedestrian area will eliminate fast-moving vehicles using the park as a cut-through and help keep Manito Park a safe place for all visitors.
