Refurbishing of four wooden bridges located within this pathway system between the William Camden Tennis courts and Glenbow Drive. These bridges are rapidly approaching the end of their lifecycles and this project is to facilitate their repair/replacement in accordance with 2016 evaluations conducted.
The bridges are wooden tread and it is intended that their design will not be altered, keeping costs to a minimum. The completion of this project in conjunction with the upgrade of the pathway, will see this section completely modernized to current standards, ensuring this area continues to be a valuable community asset and is barrier free for all residents, regardless of ability.
The Glenbow Park Pathway system is approximately 1.5 km of shale path and acts as an important connection from several areas to the Cochrane Ranche and Riverfront Park. By way of a separate capital project, the shale pathway is proposed to be upgraded upon successful award of the Active Transportation Grant.
Total project budget: $200,000
