Parks Canada has completed cleaning up the portion of the riverwalk that runs along its property at The Forks National Historic Site and has re-opened it to the public.
Nearly 900 cubic metres of material was removed, which will be used as clean fill, according to a release. In addition, 300 metric tonnes of gravel was brought in and spread on the walkway to replace the gravel washed away by the high water.
Although the riverwalk is now open, visitors should be aware that there will be heavy equipment and truck traffic on the upper pathways on Parks Canada’s property until the end of August, as the contractor will be doing additional landscaping work in these areas.
