Rose Valley Regional Park Trail Upgrading
July 26, 2013 - 5:17 PM
A major trail running through a portion of Rose Valley Regional Park will be closed while repairs are being made.
Approximately 250-meters of the main trail leading uphill from the kiosk near the upper Westlake Road parking area to the Yellowbell Loop Trail will be closed from Tuesday, July 30th through Thursday, August 1st. During this time, park visitors are asked to stay out of the signed and fenced closed trail area and use alternate trail detours.
Regional Parks workers will be repairing the washed out section of the trail which has been severely eroded. As well, they’ll make drainage improvements to reduce the potential for future trail erosion.
This work is being funded through a grant from the Community Recreation Program Trails to Health project. Since last fall, eight kilometers of trails in three large looped sections of Rose Valley Regional Park have been upgraded and levelled, hazard trees have been removed and six new lookouts and benches have been installed. Future improvements through this grant project will see way-finding trail maps and markers installed and a new information kiosk and restrooms built at the lower parking area off Westlake Road and Starlight Crescent.
