About This Park

Kleanza Creek boasts a spectacular view of its small but impressive canyon and waterfall. This view is available from the picnic site, the rocky beach and the top of the trail (Canyon Trail) that ends at a viewing area above the canyon. The beach and viewpoint are not accessible areas. The campground runs alongside Kleanza Creek as well, which is another viewing feature at this site. Kleanza Creek accessible features include: two outhouse washrooms, although only one has a designated sign posted on the building. The one without the sign is in fact a larger and more accessible facility, as well as being located at the parking lot (picnic site area). Areas for viewing the Canyon are also accessible although may require good upper body strength to access as their locations due to surfaces that are sloped and/or not level. These areas are located at the Day Use Picnic Area. The Day Use Picnic site has benches in the picnic area, at a lower viewpoint near the Canyon, and along a Creekside trail. Please note: Beach is a rocky access to the creek and falls area. The creek is used for swimming by visitors.

Trails

There are three paths leading to two picnic areas. Two of the paths have steep slopes, going down to the picnic area from the parking lot. The upper picnic area, closer to the Creek viewpoint, has a gentler slope but has a grass/gravel surface that is not level. There is a short trail near campsites that connects creek side campsites to day use picnic area. There are also benches along this trail, it could be made wider with a stable, level surface for universal access. The trail loops around to campsite paved road, and would then make a good loop trail that would be accessible. Upstream view of the trail where one section seems to be eroding away, and trees/bushes encroaching on the trail. This makes for a very narrow pathway some small spots eroding away (creekside, which is a steep hill down to the creek), with areas of loose gravel. Most of the trail is firm and stable. Ranges in some areas, 1 degree and gentle to 2-3 degrees Length of trail is approximately .5 km. The trail connects to camground road, and therefore could be considered a loop trail, leading back along the paved road to the picnic site (and therefore about 1 km in length).

Water Access

The beach area beside the creek is accessed by a short (5 metre) but steep trail with rocks and dirt; the surface is somewhat unstable with loose dirt/rocks. A second access route exists, leading from a viewing/bench area of the day use area but this is also a short steep trail that cuts through an area of large rocks. Not wheelchair accessible. The beach does not have an accessible route and is not suitable for wheelchair access. Could be difficult to manage for anyone with mobility issues. Download Full Accessibility Audit
