The County of Grande Prairie’s open house for the proposed Wapiti Recreation Area in is tonight and a local group is hoping to put forward the idea of a bike park.
Matt Wild with Wapiti Nordic Bike Club will present the proposal.
“It’s a very inclusive opportunity, all you need is a bike to enjoy it, you don’t need a pass, you don’t have to make a time that you have to be there as long as the sun is shining and the trails are dry you can go ride.”
Items in the proposal include: snowshoeing, walking and cycling trails; fishing; and a picnic and day-use area.
“Outdoor recreation and greenspace are top priorities for residents, so our goal is to develop a safe area where active lifestyles and environmental stewardship co-exist,” said Christine Rawlins, Parks & Recreation Manager. “The open house will ensure local citizens and user groups have a strong voice in deciding what that recreation area looks like.”
The open house starts at 6:30 p.m. and runs till 8:30 p.m. at the ENTREC Centre out at Evergreen Park.
