Council approved two recreation projects recommended by the Paths, Parks and Recreation Committee at the January 20th meeting.
Council allocated $55,000 toward development of Arrowhead Park and $45,000 toward the building of Turner Trail. The funds came from a $100,000 reserve under Parks, Pathways and Recreation in the 2020 Capital Budget.
Arrowhead Park will be located west of Decalta Road and south of the Sheep River.
Turner Trail will run from Robert Street, crossing Okalta Road and running alongside Turner Gate and then Turner Drive, proceeding down to the river bank; eventually it will extend to Riverside Park.
The Paths, Parks and Recreation Committee conducted open houses (Aug and Sept) and an online survey last year to gather public opinions of the proposed recreation areas. The results were compiled and presented to Turner Valley Council in October.
There will be opportunities for residents to volunteer once the development of Arrowhead Park is underway.
