Project reaches the halfway mark

Improvements to Bright Angel Park have reached the halfway mark.

New washrooms, fitness stations, an outdoor classroom amphitheatre, an accessible trail loop, a nature landscape area, habitat protection fencing and parking areas are now complete.

A new playground, play field upgrades, general landscaping, site furniture and improved park signage will be finished during the next six months.

The park, located 10 kilometres south of Duncan, received funding for the improvements from the provincial government.

The park remains open to the public as the work is being completed. However, park visitors are asked to follow the instructions on signs in the areas under construction.
