KAMLOOPS - Thanks to the continued decline in river levels, parks are returning to normal in Kamloops.

The City of Kamloops has opened the pier at Riverside Park and the Rivers Trail between Riverside Park and Pioneer Park. The receding water means both areas are safe for public use again.

As water levels continue to decline they will be removed.
