“star light, star bright...”

McDonald Park, in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, is a dark-sky preserve, designated thus by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. The park is located in a valley, and at night light pollution from the nearby cities of Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Mission is blocked by Sumas Mountain. The park opens at night for observations under the auspices of the Fraser Valley Astronomers Society. It should be noted that if you are not a member of the Fraser Valley Astronomers Society (FVAS) and are visiting the park after hours, security will arrive to close the gates at the park. It is strongly advised that if you wish to remain at the park, to please leave your car outside the gate, so as not to run the risk of being locked in. This will also mean that you will have to pack out your equipment later. Also note that Security also locks the washrooms at the park if no FVAS member is present.
