Rotary Orchard Trail Improvement Project Set to Begin

Posted on

Project will upgrade trail connecting the Village core to Coal Creek Historic Park

In partnership with the Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial, the Village will be implementing improvements to Rotary Orchard Trail this spring. The 800m trail runs between the Camp Road–Derwent Alley (Porky’s Path) in the east to Comox Lake Road just west of Rotary Orchard Park in the west.

Trail crews will begin work the week of April 20th and the project is expected to be completed in mid-May. Temporary trail closures of short duration may be required; please obey posted signs and follow the direction of workers on site.

Trail upgrades include:

  • Improving drainage and replacing the boardwalk with swales and culverts;
  • Removing embedded obstacles (roots and rocks) and improving surfacing with native (on site) soils.
  • Realigning the trail approach to Comox Lake Road
  • Other minor works to improve sightlines, safety, accessibility and user experience.

The overall objective of the project is to maintain the rustic character of the existing path, but to bring the trail up to a safer, more sustainable standard.

The Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial has provided a generous $4000 financial contribution to the project as part of their commitment to the parks and trails in the area.
