​​​North Shore Trail Maintenance Work

Maintenance work will take place to improve the North Shore Trail's surface. Parts of the trail will be closed at certain times during the work.

​​Painswick Park Pickleball Court Construction  ​​

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. 

August – end of October, 2021

Waterfront Trail Rehabilitation (complete)

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

Wilkins Park & Hewitt's Creek Rehabilitation

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.  

June 2–15
