Chloey Martin and Alicia Heppner make their way along the new district trail that runs parallel to Highway 97A.

Trail a safe alternative to busy highway

The trail keeps us all safely away from the cars and trucks that whiz by along that busy road…

Thank you, thank you to our mayor and council, and our municipal crew, for putting in our new pathway that winds alongside Highway 97A from the police station all the way to Kappel Street. This is a wonderful feature for all the walkers, bike riders, joggers and nature lovers in our community.  The trail keeps us all safely away from the cars and trucks that whiz by along that busy road, and the shade will give us relief from the hot summer sun. I can’t wait to walk under the canopy of the trees when it snows.
