PUBLIC NOTICES

 

Trail Closure at Oyster River Nature Park
This is to advise the public that sections of trails that exist outside of the Oyster River Nature Park boundary, commonly referred to as the “Pub-to-Pub Trail”,  reside on private property.  An agreement with the private landowner has lapsed and the Strathcona Regional District is working with the property owner to negotiate a renewed agreement that will allow access to those portions of trail corridor resting on private land. In the interim, the property owner has restricted access to the private portions of the trail from the Oyster River Nature Park due to risk and liability associated with erosion and bank stability caused by recent storm events.

The SRD understands the importance of this trail network to the community, and the need for a renewed agreement that will allow for continued public access to the “Pub-to-Pub Trail’. The SRD is hopeful to reach an agreement with the property owner in the near future; however, until an agreement is in place, the SRD is not authorized to conduct works on the private trail section and has no authority to relocate affected sections of trail back from the eroded river bank.  To date, negotiations have not included trail relocation considerations and any relocation of the trail would have to be approved by the private property owner.

Please contact us at 250.830.6722 or by email at parks@strathconard.ca if you have any questions or concerns.
