CVRD to create better access to Nymph Falls Park
When summer finally arrives in the Comox Valley and our thoughts turn from snow sports toward cooling off with a swim in an area river, the Comox Valley Regional District will have completed a major project to allow for easier access to Nymph Falls Parks.
The CVRD issued the following media release.
“By May, those with mobility challenges will be able to more easily wheel to the falls from the parking lot. With the falls being one of the more popular swimming spots in the region, summer visitors will also enjoy the wider, more gently sloped trail.
“The new trail will be 3.5 metres (11.5 feet) in width, which is similar to the main trail that extends into the park from the parking lot. The widened trail will also allow emergency vehicles to have access, and service vehicles to effectively manage outhouse waste. Additional improvements will also include a viewing platform and an accessible toilet.
“Trail widening and rerouting starts Thursday, Jan. 31, beginning with the falling of approximately 20 Cedar and 17 Fir trees. Permits were issued by the province and the timber will remain in the park for habitat use. This work will close the Mid-Line Trail to the falls for all of February and March with a portion of the parking lot also closed.
“Park visitors will be directed around the construction with the Lower River Trail being the best option for getting to the falls. During construction visitors are encouraged to discover other parks such as the CVRD’s nearby Wildwood Forest Park.
“Wacor Holdings will be completing the project which is expected to be finalized in May. For more information and project updates, residents may visit the project page at www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/accessibletrail .
“The CVRD thanks residents and trail users for their patience as this work is being done to improve the park, and welcomes questions and comments at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 250-334-6000.”
