Temporary Detour at Lewis Park Walkway

March 18, 2014

A section of the popular Lewis Park river walkway in Courtenay, behind the Memorial Outdoor Pool, will require a short detour next week. On Monday, March 24, starting at 6:00 am, City crews will begin dismantling the bleachers on the north side of the pool, adjacent to the walkway, as well as replacing fencing. The walkway is scheduled to reopen the following week on Tuesday, April 1 at 4:00 pm.

Joy Chan, the City of Courtenay’s property management coordinator, said signage will be posted to direct walkway users away from the work zone.

“We’re setting up a detour that will go around the other side of the outdoor pool, next to the wading pool,” advised Chan. “The detour will be accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.”

The old bleachers will be replaced by new aluminum bleachers and a fabric canopy for shade in the coming weeks, prior to the Outdoor Pool season opening in early June.
