New multi-use path for Kamloops waterfront park in the works

Kamloops residents might have noticed a line of flagged wooden stakes going through one of three busy parks on the waterfront.

Located on 7 Street on the Thompson River, Pioneer Park is a popular place for walking dogs, wading in the water, lounging and picnicking and is one of three waterfront parks connected by a paved walking trail.

Adam Gordon is the capital projects supervisor with the city and is overseeing the new developments at Pioneer Park which will be unfolding over the next few months.

“Those stakes are marking out where the new multipurpose path is going, connecting from the tennis courts to just under the bridge,” he said. “There is going to be lighting along that trail, it'll be well lit.”

The parking lot will be resurfaced and asphalt will be put down for the boat trailer parking lot.

The improvements have been coming for a quite a few years as part of the Riverside to Pioneer Park Management Plan adopted by city council in 2015. It also lays out ongoing improvements and upgrades for the Riverside and Waterfront parks.

Signage will be put up in the park next week with details for the public on the waterfront project developments happening this year.
