Infrastructure work will create temporary closures to Kinsman Park trails – Ladysmith Chronicle
The Town of Ladysmith advises the public of infrastructure work requiring the temporary closure of certain trails in Kinsmen Park, as well as pedestrian access from Davidson Road. Closures are expected to begin the week of March 14 and continue through early April.
“A private contractor is installing utilities including a water main, sanitary sewer and storm sewer for a new subdivision that stretches from Malone Road onto private property behind the park,” reads a statement. City press release.
The removal of approximately six trees in Kinsmen Park was completed this week before closing. The tree removal schedule meets provincial and federal requirements for protecting bird species and their nests, according to the city.
The city plans to conserve the woods for future park projects to benefit the community. The proponent will provide two trees for each tree removed and the city will select the appropriate species and locations for planting.
Following the felling of the trees, the contractor will require the temporary closure of the chemin Davidson road as well as the trails leading to the wooded area of the park.
The city said it does not expect this infrastructure work to impact other park amenities, including recreational bike paths and the Storybook Walk.
