The trail connecting Painter Trail in Murray’s Pond Park and the sidewalk north of Royal Bay Secondary will be closed for just over two days starting Wednesday morning (June 16).

Pedestrians can alternatively pass through the Royal Bay Secondary parking lot or Ryder Hesjedal Way but are asked to use caution in the parking lot.

This work supports the building of a new viewing platform at Murray’s Pond, which is both an ecological and historical site.
