With a movement toward green infrastructure, alternative modes of transportation and an emphasis on healthy lifestyles, the public demand for increased cycling and pedestrian facilities and sustainable public landscapes is becoming more prevalent. These corridors will link key areas of the City and connect neighbourhoods, town centres, recreation centres, parks, schools and transit.
One of these corridors is located in the area of Parkinson Recreation Park, on both sides of Highway 97. The multi-use trail provides a connection between the new Highway 97 pedestrian overpass, Bus Rapid Transit station, the Parkinson Recreational Center, Apple Bowl and Rails-with-Trails pathway corridor. At key points along the corridor, native plantings are employed to restore and enhance the riparian habitat of Mill Creek.
