Work will begin later this year on the expansion of the Muskoseepi Park trail into North Bear Creek. City Council approved a tender for the nearly $1.2 million project at last night’s regular meeting. Parks Planner Lindsay Juniper says there are three parts to the project.
“Basically what we’re going to be doing is adding just over 900 meters of new trail. The trail will be starting at Centre 2000 and it will terminate at a new parking lot that will be built on the land that is directly west of Kal -Tire.”
Juniper says It will also include an interpretative playground area for kids. The new trail is 100th Anniversary Legacy Project, which the city initially committed $747,168 dollars to in 2011, however due to an increase in cost, council decided to set aside another $800,000 dollars of MSI funding to help cover any shortfalls.
