South Courtenay Riverway Extension

Start: 2020


Last Updated: November 6, 2019

Project Description:

Pedestrian and cycling connections and the enjoyment of our estuary are important to the residents of the Comox Valley. 

Courtenay Mayor and Council have directed staff to complete the Courtenay Riverway Trail, with an eventual goal of connecting to the Royston Seaside Trail. This decision is supported by the Official Community Plan, Regional Growth Strategy, Parks and Recreation Master Plan, Transportation Master Plan, and the Cycling Network Plan.

The first phase of construction is planned between Millard Road and Beachwood Road.

Learn more about the project at an upcoming open house:

The Riverway Trail will provide an off-road, recreational connection to Downtown Courtenay and the rest of our valued trail network. It will be consistent with other sections of the existing trail.

An illustration of the potential trail design is shown below.


The trail will be constructed along the former rail corridor that is now owned by the City of Courtenay.
