In addition to a freshly paved road, new playground and upgrades at the disc golf course, McArthur Island can add a new accessible pathway to its list of improvements this year.

Work began in October to upgrade the existing dike along the Rivers Trail on McArthur Island between 12th Street and Mackenzie Avenue as part of flood mitigation work. The trail, which was previously a gravel route, is now fully paved and three meters wide, allowing for enjoyment by those of all ages and abilities.

“Over the last two years, we’ve put a lot of work into upgrading McArthur Island, and part of that was repaving the multi-use pathway to make it accessible for everyone.

“This last section completes the paved circuit around the park,” said Jeff Putnam, Parks and Facilities Manager for the City.
