Enjoy two new gravel trails in Glanford Park [PDF - 139 KB] - this trail work came from the approved concept plan [PDF - 4.7 MB]. These trails connect the asphalt parking lot on Kenneth Avenue to the gravel parking lot along Agnes Street and tie into the main park pathway. Additional park improvements will include tree planting along the trails and a new seating area where the pathways connect to the existing park pathway.
The new benches are on order and will be ready to enjoy soon!
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the current Gorge Bridge, we created an interpretive sign celebrating the bridges history. Check it out on the northeast side of the bridge: https://goo.gl/maps/ESfYPnW8dRJ2
Our team is trying to mitigate trail erosion on the Glendenning and South Ridge trails. Look out for our teams performing trail maintenance. We ask parks visitors to always use the formal park trails in Mount Douglas Park to help protect this natural area. We do have equipment accessing these trails and ask park users to use caution in the work areas. Please stay on the designated trails to help reduce erosion in the park.
The Hampton Park [PDF - 122 KB] tennis courts are getting a refresh! Lines will be painted to enable both tennis and pickleball court play. The new acrylic surface will be ready come spring, so for now, play is good to go on the bare cement surface.
We also will be installing new pathways around the park to make the trek from the lower to upper soccer fields a bit easier! Check out where other courts are should you need to play elsewhere during construction.
Our crews are working on the pathways around Copley West Park [PDF - 87 KB]. A temporary base path is ready for use. The final pathway will worked on in 2018, as we need to finish the football field first! Minimal interruptions to park access will occur.
