Biographical history

The Parks Branch (also called the Provincial Parks Branch) was originally called the Parks and Recreation Division and until 1957 it reported to the Dept. of Lands and Forests. As of March 28, 1957 the name of the branch changed and began to report to the newly formed Dept. of Recreation and Conservation. The main objective of the branch was to plan, develop and maintain a parks system including camp-site and roadside picnic areas and marinas, capable of meeting the non-urban recreational needs of the people of British Columbia. Lands and waters for the use and enjoyment of the public were obtained, largely through establishing reserves of Crown Lands. When necessary to complete a land system of parks or a water system of marinas, acquisition is by purchase. Occasionally a gift of an area was made by a public spirited citizen.
On December 5, 1978, the Parks Branch was amalgamated with the Land Management Branch and the housing function of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to form the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing.
