River Bend Enhancements
The River Bend Trail Enhancement Project includes:
- Widening 5.5 kilometers of the existing 14.5 kilometers of trails
- Constructing a stadium area
- Enhancing the biathlon range
Widening trails will result in tree removal in select areas. Starting March 11, 2017 the upper trails of River Bend will close for approximately three to four weeks while widening work is underway. The lower trails, including the perimeter trail, trails around the driving range and through the golf course will remain open until the end of the cross country season. There will be additional trail closures with signage posted to direct trail users until the project is completed in Fall 2017.
Parkland Ski Club is proposing additional work to the trails at River Bend Golf and Recreation Area to host long distance cross country ski events, enhance site safety and improve the overall usability of these trails.
