The back side of the Puntledge Park Trail - the side that travels along the river - will be closed Friday, April 5, to accommodate BC Hydro infrastructure work.

Partial Puntledge Park trail closure Friday morning

This Friday, April 5, a large section of the main trail in Puntledge Park will be closed all morning while BC Hydro crews remove some of its old infrastructure from the park. The closure will include the entire trail starting just past the playground, continuing all the way to Willemar Avenue at Robert Lang Drive. The closure is expected to start at 7 a.m. and last until noon.

Please stay clear of the work zones and closed areas for your safety and that of all crews working on site. They’ll re-open the trail as quickly as possible as soon as it’s safe to do so.

For more information, contact Public Works Services at 250-338-1525 or
