From March 7 through the March 31, sections of the Mission Creek Greenway may be periodically closed for hazard tree removal, pruning and vegetation maintenance.
This work is taking place along the trail on the north side of Mission Creek between Lakeshore Road upstream to Mission Creek Regional Park and along the south Creekside trail between Lakeshore Road upstream to Casorso Road.
For their safety trail visitors should, where possible, use the south trail to bypass possible closures along the north side of the creek or they may wish to use other areas of the Greenway while this work is underway.
The Regional District of Central Okanagan asks that Greenway users please obey any barricades, signs and flag people and stay out of any closed areas.
A contractor for the Ministry of the Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations, Public Safety and Protection Branch will be pruning and removing brush and hazardous trees so that the dike can be visually inspected during periods of highs flows in Mission Creek.
For information on the dike vegetation maintenance, please contact the Ministry of the Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations at 250-490-7876.
