The marine boardwalk between Ed Macgregor Park and the Rotary Pier has been reopened after a brief closure to evaluate damage sustained during last week’s winter storm. Temporary railings have been installed to ensure public safety and allow for pedestrian access while permanent repairs are completed.

“I’m pleased to see the marine boardwalk has been reopened quickly, allowing residents and visitors to take advantage of this wonderful community asset,” says Deputy Mayor Jeff Bateman. “Council has identified increased trail infrastructure as a strategic priority, and we look forward to even more opportunities to explore our beautiful natural environment with the upcoming expansion of our urban trail network.”

The District of Sooke has begun installation of directional signage for three main trail systems that connect pedestrian infrastructure throughout the community. Planned routes include the Stickleback Trail, the Sun Run, and the Sea Walk Trail, the latter of which will connect the marine boardwalk with Sooke’s Town Centre.
