More Improvements Planned
More improvements are planned for trails in the Paradise Meadows end of Strathcona Provincial Park, BC Parks Area Supervisor Andy Smith said.
“While we can’t say at this time whether more construction will get started this year, BC Parks hopes to modify the old boardwalk loop trail in the Meadows,” Smith said.
The area, part of the Battleship trail, will see BC Parks remove all the steps to make the boardwalk flatter.
“We also will be improving the trail ‘tread’ around the very popular Lake Helen Mackenzie/Battleship Lake circuit trail,” he said. “This may involve spreading new bark mulch, gravel or both over the existing trail, installing some side retention, installing culverts where needed and even some new boardwalk where necessary.”
