We completed the replacement of all the face boards on the boardwalk, some funding did not materialize, so we have to replace the boardwalk in 2 phases over 2 years.

We will complete the replacement of the stringers and posts next year as long as we can pull the rest of the  funding together. It will costs about $80,000 to $90,000 dollars for the full replacement of the boardwalk. The first part cost about $30,000. We also replaced the shorter 3rd boardwalk for $7,000.00,

We have been approved for a $25,000 contribution from the Halifax Regional Municipality.

We have received emergency funding from CCTH of $20,000, WRWEO recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture, Tourism and Heritage to develop and promote trails for all Nova Scotians.

We also received $10,000 from councillor Iona Stoddard – thank you very much Councillor Stoddard.

We have also raised over $13,000 from Trail Users and WRWEO members.

We are still about $22,000 ($90,000 – $68,000) short of the funds needed to get the work completed. Please donate or become a member of WRWEO:
