Did you know that the County Parks & Recreation department is in charge of maintaining the trails throughout the County year-round?
After a significant snowfall of two inches or more, County Parks & Recreation maintenance crew are out clearing snow and ice from the trails in Clairmont; Wapiti Dunes Trail; and Evergreen Park Trail. This means that outdoor sports and recreation enthusiasts will be able to use the trails with ease year-round.
The Parks & Recreation department clears snow and ice from routes in the following order:
- County Fire Hall parking lots and sidewalks
- Crosslink County Sportsplex parking lots
- Community Services Building parking lot and sidewalks
- Clairmont Trails; Wapiti Dunes Trail and Evergreen Park Trail
If you are using the trails this winter:
- Do not litter; dispose of waste/garbage in the garbage cans provided along the trail
- Dispose of pet droppings in pet waste dispensers which are located at the garbage receptacles
- Use the right side of the trail if possible (treat it like a road system)
- Yield to faster moving users
- Ensure you are visible to other users
- Wear bright clothes, and ensure you have reflectors if using the trails when dark outside
- Give audible signals when overtaking another user
- Use vocal communication if you do not have a horn or bell
The use of motorized and off-highway vehicles is strictly prohibited.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding snow removal on trails please contact the Parks & Recreation department at 780-532-9727. For more information on the County trail use and greenspace rules and regulations, visit www.countygp.ab.ca
