      The Vancouver Park Board has just announced that part of the Stanley Park Seawall has been closed after last night's storm.

      "Due to a king tide and high water levels," said the park board in a tweet, "we have closed the Seawall from Lions Gate Bridge to Third Beach. We also advise the public to avoid paths along the shore between Jericho/Spanish Banks to Vanier, and Vanier to Stanley Park. Our teams are working hard to clear the debris."

      The park board has also temporarily closed the Jericho Pier due to high water, strong waves, and impact from floating debris (logs).

      The Vancouver park board maintains 240 parks and 40 major facilities in Vancouver. For updates follow the VPB on Twitter at @ParkBoard.
