City of White Rock closes Pier in battle against COVID-19

COVID19 Update - City Council votes to close Pier

White Rock City Council voted March 23 to temporarily close the White Rock Pier, a popular seaside attraction, to help flatten the curve in the growing number of COVID-19 cases.

The City closed Waterfront parking lots and the West Beach Parkade starting March 23, allowing only 15 and 30-minute parking on the north side of Marine Drive for takeout food from local restaurants.

The City has been monitoring activity on the Waterfront during the COVID-19 pandemic and observed that many people were not keeping a safe social distance of two metres or more from each other.

COVID-19 Response

City facilities and playgrounds are temporarily closed to the public. City services are available online at

Mayor Darryl Walker

“The White Rock Pier is the jewel of our Waterfront. It’s a popular attraction that brings visitors from across the Lower Mainland, other parts of B.C. and from around the world.

We are serious about shutting down the coronavirus, and doing our part to keep people in White Rock safe and healthy. Closing the Pier and Waterfront parking are ways we can reduce the number of people on our Waterfront, and work together to beat this terrible virus that has such an enormous impact on our lives.”
