Gyro Park is for humans again.
The City of Nelson announced Friday the family of black bears that had spent the last month living in Gyro Park have moved on to higher elevations. The park has now reopened to the public.
“Your co-operation has been greatly appreciated in ensuring both our community and our bear neighbours can coexist harmoniously.”
The mother bear and four cubs could often be seen playing in the park’s playground during the daytime. Their presence also coincided with a trio of grizzly bears that were relocated out of Nelson only to return.
