The Forks as a public space is open and following all of the latest COVID-19 protocols.


Public Space -  Gathering Sizes

Current guidelines allow gatherings of up to 5 people outdoors, in non-licensed public areas (see below). Please respect these limits while on site. 

Licensed/Patio Area is Currently Closed for Dining of Any Kind

Our entire patio area is licensed. Normally, that’s an awesome thing.

Right now, that means you can't eat or drink there because the whole area is seen as a licensed patio under public health guidelines. If you do, you risk being fined by public health officials.

Our team will remind you of this if you are dining here, whether you bring food from home or buy from our tenants. Please don’t take it personally. We are just upholding the guidelines that will get us all back to being together again soon.

Feel free to have a seat and a chat and admire the amazing view.

And, there are 54 acres here. Feel free to picnic anywhere else on the rest of The Forks site outside of the licensed area, keeping to gathering sizes.

With Target Zero, we’re taking every step we can to implement innovative and responsible environmental practices that are good for the planet and the bottom line.
