The survey builds on the first round of public engagement in December 2019 and January 2020 to better understand what residents think of existing parks and trails and what they want to see in the future.
City crews have completed a loop connection on the north side of the Parksville Wetlands, adding 600 m to the 2.3 km trail loop.
Active transportation includes all human-powered forms of travel, including walking, cycling, in-line skating and skateboarding, as well as electric-powered forms of travel such as e-bikes and mobility scooters.
The city says it needs to widen the trails for maintenance, emergency access and safe egress for ambulance and fire protection.
The work will complete a 2.3 km loop trail within one side of the wetlands and is expected to take up to six weeks.
Wet conditions and supply issues mean some upgrades to the Parksville Wetlands trails will have to be finished next year.
Crews will be working on trails on the Coldwater Road side of the Parksville Wetlands starting Oct. 4.
