Duff Roblin Parkway Trail running along floodway opens

  • Print

A 52-kilometre trail along the floodway, named for the brains behind Duff's ditch, officially opened today.

The Duff Roblin Parkway Trail runs the entire length of the floodway, from Lockport to St. Norbert and includes a new pedestrian bridge across Highway 59 and a floating bridge across the floodway.

Much of the trail has been open for months but the floating bridge completing the trail was just completed last week. Premier Greg Selinger opened the trail Tuesday in Birds Hill Provincial Park, just in time for Folk Fest.

Selinger said the trail is part of a larger network of trails, including the Trans Canada Trail, that promote active living and transportation.

The trail is mostly gravel, with some paved sections through Birds Hill.
