It was standing room only on Monday, December 9, when POS staff presented the Suzanne Arlie Park master plan proposal.
An enthusiastic group of more than 120 community members listened as staff outlined the plans to turn 515 acres of parkland into a network of interconnected trails for nature-based recreation and outdoor education. Miles of shared-use trails for bikes and pedestrians, a disc golf course, recreational camping area and 50-acre mountain bike skills park are featured in the proposal. The plan also includes extensive habitat conservation and restoration efforts.
Purchase of the land was made possible by the 2006 Parks Bond and System Development Charges (SDCs) and a portion of the new development costs will come from the 2018 Parks and Recreation Bond.
