mfg

We've heard about the revamped Margaret Falls Trail System all week, but how much did it cost?

Adrian Wynnyck, Recreation Section Head for BC Parks has more, saying "The overall pricetag came out to around $500,000, and we're still waiting on a few invoices from suppliers and contractors to come in."

He says that recurring delays didn't cost any money though "It didn't affect the budget, just the timing."

Wynnyk also notes that some work was done to protect against future flooding "We can't do anything above the falls - that's outside of the park area, but below the falls we did some armouring and work along the stream edge to protect the facilities and prevent future damage."

In the end Wynnyk says he's happy with the finished product, and the positive reviews.
