Work in and around the trails at Riverbend Recreation Area is underway with contractors in the area felling and removing trees. The work is expected to take place from Monday, November 14, 2022, until November 25, 2022.

The trails remain open; however, trail users and cross-country skiers are advised there may be crews working throughout the park.

“The felling and removal of these trees is limited to those that are dying and damaged to reduce risk for trail users and the public,” said Doug Evans, Biodiversity Supervisor. “Assessing and removing damaged and dying trees is part of our regular urban forestry practices, and we always make every effort to remove as few trees as possible, and only those that are absolutely required.”

The City thanks the public for their cooperation to avoid areas with trail closure and tree work signage while staff fell and process trees.
