Complete Streets for Prince Rupert recently endorsed the Kaien Island Trail Enhancement and Recreation Society’s (KITEARS) Port of Prince Rupert Community Investment Fund grant application to upgrade the McClymont Park Trail.
The plan is to improve the trail so that it is accessible for everyone including people in wheelchairs and people who ride bicycles. The trail would provide a useful off-street connection between Rushbrook, and cultural, recreational and educational facilities located around the Civic Centre.
Investments in walkability and cycling infrastructure promote the overall health of the community, and would help make Prince Rupert a more appealing place to visit and live.
