Lovers Creek Channel Rehabilitation

Adjacent to Brunton Park

The Lovers Creek channel adjacent to Brunton Park is eroding the toe​ of the valley slope as it moves through a sharp bend. As a safety precaution, the City installed a chain link fence in 2006 along the top of the valley slope to restrict public access to this area.

The proposed design project requires rehabilitation works and could involve channel realignment, purchasing of land required to accommodate realignment of the creek and regrading of the valley slopes as required.

Project Updates

July 2021: A public information centre is planned for September 9, 2021. The project will be tendered in the fall so construction can begin in late spring 2022.

Previous Updates

April 2021: 90% Detailed Design package has been completed.

June 2020: 60% Detailed Design package under development.​​​

Project Features

The objective of this project:

  • A retaining wall will be constructed along Lovers Creek to stabilize the existing 9m valley slope. The remaining slope will be regraded and revegetated to a stable inclination.
  • The creek will be realigned using n​atural channel so that it does not continue to erode the base of the slope. ​


​Public Information Centre* Fall 2021
Design 2020–2021
​Property Acquisition ​2021
​Construction ​​2022–2023
*A notice for the Public Information Centre will be mailed to residents. It is expected that a digital PIC will take place due to ongoing restrictions on public gatherings.

Traffic Impacts

Traffic impacts from road closures are not expected as a result of this project. Brunton Park is expected to be impacted during construction, however, the playground equipment will be fenced off so that it may remain open during construction.
