Amazon Trail Reconstruction

This project will provide a complete reconstruction of the North Amazon Running Trail, located in Amazon Park, to be completed in 2020. Though the beloved trail footprint will not change, we will be adding a thicker rock base for long-term stability and a more level path. Other improvements include:

  • Lighting replacement and additional lighting added to unlit portions.
  • Replacement of the stretching station.
  • Replacement of the existing shelter.
  • New distance markers.
  • Drainage improvements.

Funding for this project will come from the 2018 Parks and Recreation Bond ($750,000) and system development charges ($785,000). It is scheduled to start after the Olympic trials in June 2020.
