Planned, upcoming, or recently completed parks and trails construction projects are summarized alphabetically below. As projects are confirmed each year, the below information is updated.
This project consists of the installation of two acrylic-coasted asphalt pickleball courts to be built adjacent to the existing pickleball court. A paved pathway on the south side of the court will connect to service both courts. Access to the existing pickleball courts may be impacted at times due to the proximity of the construction.
Excavation and new asphalt on the upper portion of the
waterfront trail from the Southshore Community Centre to the Kiwanis Pavilion. Lower path remains open during the project.
May 3 – June 4, 2021
Work is being done to improve naturalization and prevent environmental degradation. This work will increase the climate change resiliency of the area, as well as improve ecological health of local plants and aquatic life. It will create a healthier, more sustainable shoreline and improve the health of Hewitt's Creek and Kempenfelt Bay.
Ecological restoration work begins June 2, 2021. This work will include grading/planting of the creek shoreline area, top-up of eroded sand areas, culvert installation and trail resurfacing, and lake shoreline boulder installation and planting (outside of the sandy shoreline). This initial work will be complete by June 15, 2021. The public should stay out of the fenced off areas.
Final work will take place in the fall, scheduled to begin in mid-September. Staff will be completing necessary activities to reduce erosion of the shoreline at Wilkins Park, including installation of a small drainage culvert and erosion controls at the outlets. Post and rail fencing will be extended up the trail system to protect other sensitive areas, as well as where steep slopes are close to trail edges.
