A major upgrade project to the Polson Park pedestrian and cycling trail s nearing completion.

In order to finish the ramp access at the south end of the boardwalk, crews will need to close the trail for one day on Friday, November 20. The trail is expected to be re-opened on November 21.

Cyclists and pedestrians will need to detour around Polson Park by using the sidewalk along HWY 6 (between 25th Avenue and Kalamalka Lake Road) and along Kalamalka Lake Road (from HWY 6 to 14th Avenue, near the Kal-Tire office). Cyclists are reminded to dismount their bikes while using the sidewalk.

Over the summer, the pedestrian and cycling route through Polson Park was upgraded with an asphalt multi-use path. The project will also include the installation of new streetlights and low-level lighting to be added along the boardwalk and path, and additional wayfinding signs to be placed in and around the park.

The City of Vernon appreciates everyone’s patience as this work is being completed to improve safety and active transportation opportunities through the park.
