Trail Changes

From 2024 to 2027, some trails within 30 metres of Englishman River and the C.W. Young Side Channel will be closed or rerouted. Closed trails will be naturalized by placing woody debris, planting native trees and shrubs, building split rail fencing and installing signage. Refer to the map below to see which trails will be affected.

Why are these changes happening?

The lands within the park are owned by the Province, Nature Trust of BC, Ducks Unlimited Canada and the Nature Conservancy of Canada. These land owners require the park to be managed to achieve environmental conservation goals, including protecting and restoring sensitive habitat along the river and C.W. Young Side Channel.

In May 2023, the RDN Board passed a motion to implement riparian area improvements that will involve closing or rerouting some trails within the park. The changes to trails are based on a study conducted by an external environmental consultant and aim to better balance recreational activities with the protection of sensitive environmental features.
