Our small city takes pride in the many kilometres of walking/hiking/biking trails it has developed.

All of the trails are paved and well-maintained. At the first sign of deterioration, repairs are made.

Our green spaces are meticulously cared for by the city employees and respected by the citizens who use the spaces. In the more than two years I’ve been using these trails, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve seen scraps of garbage or pet waste along any of the trails.

River Park is the largest park of many in and around our city. Early yesterday morning, by the time I reached this point in my walk, one of the city employees had already mowed a vast expanse of the grass. There’s a full service RV campground as you enter the park. At the edge of the campground is the entry to the Signal Hill trail system that winds through a nature habitat.

The historical Moffet Steps in the foreground of the photo will soon have the flower bed in front of them planted. I’ll feature the steps in a blog post once the flowers are filled in with blooms.

“Out of all those millions and millions of planets floating around there in space, this is our planet, this is our little one, so we just got to be aware of it and take care of it.”
