Any one else with info. on this? For example, could one park and walk.

Webcam does not get close enough to see what's happening.

Found the below in a random search but I doubt this is it as you'd think there would be signage.

"For many years Delta has been working with BC Ferries on the concept of a Causeway Park, located on the south side of the ferry causeway. While the BC Ferry Corporation has allowed access to this area during daylight hours through a gate, no park has ever been developed." https://delta.civicweb.net/document/33152

Last weekend there was some access, but space has been much limited, both for parking, rigging, launching and landing. Big machinery and a construction gate blocks access to the rest of the spit.
