We're at the finish line!

Thank you everyone for participating in this process so far. We now have a draft plan to share with you. You can review a 3 page summary or the entire Draft Plan in our Document Library. Previous engagement summaries are also in the Document Library.

Before the Draft Plan goes to City Council for consideration, we want to hear from you: are we on the right track? Complete our short survey by October 11 below. Survey results will be used to finalize the plan.


Help shape the future of parks and trails in Powell River!

City of Powell River is developing a Parks and Trails Master Plan. This plan will identify our community's needs for the next 15 years. It will help Council and staff make decisions, like:

  • What kinds of parks and trails does the city need today and in the future?
  • Do we have enough parks and trails? How do we know that?
  • Where do we need new parks and trails?
  • What should parks and trails include so that they are welcoming for everyone?

    I walk these trails on a an almost daily basis. I would like to suggest that the area between Nootka and Penticton below Manson be added to the park area of Penticton to Teakerne. I however would not like to see the tree thinning that went into the other section go in here. The 2 owl nest stumps and the 2 woodpecker nesting stumps that had been in use for years were cut down while thinning.

    Thank you for this feedback. While this parcel is City-owned, it is zoned for residential use. In early 2020, the City is undertaking a process to look at all City lands, including this parcel, to come up with a strategy on how best to use them. Please stay tuned for more information on the “City Lands Strategy”.

    I walk these trails daily as I live in the area, Is there the possibility of garbage cans and benches added to the 3 main entrances of the Nootka to Teakerne trail area. Nootka St off Westview Ave, Penticton/Ontario entrance and Teakerne/Ontario entrance. Also later down the road in the planning having some parking just off the road for 6-10 vehicles at the Penticton Ontario entrance would be a good idea.

    Thank you for this idea. The Parks Department would be happy to put this in place.

    Why does the city not take a page form Calgary Alberta and work to build a network of black-top (paved) bike trails throughout the city which are separated from the sidewalk and road networks? Calgary has a fantastic network of bike and walking paths which provide a safe space for walking and cycling.

    Thank you for this idea. As part of this staff and the consultant are looking at ways to improving walking paths and bike lanes in Powell River. We’ll be sure to share this example with the consultant!

    The trail from the top of Lytton Avenue at Ladner across the top of the Oceanview school property to Nootka Ave is not shown on the map.Is there a reason it is missing?

    Sherri Asked 10 months ago

    Hi Sherri, 

    As part of the Eagle Ridge Place subdivision, the developers were responsible for upgrading this path with some gravel levelling and lighting along their retaining wall. That pathway is more like a narrow pedestrian pathways the City has in some places connecting cul-de-sacs to arterial roads, it is disconnected from a trail system and therefore, is why it is not shown on the map.
