Google Map       

This short loop was already paved in 2005, but City Park has seen many improvements in the 10 years since Volume 1 was printed.  New public washrooms and stage were constructed in 2009 at the east end of the park. This year a brand new spray park will open right beside the city park stage beside two other wonderful playgrounds.    There is lots of parking at the improved Selkirk College parking lot or at the end of 4th right beside the river.

The paved trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail and circles the park.  There is a new TCT Bantam trail marker beside new rock signage dedicated to the preservation of the river’s riparian areas. There is lots more to see:  a BMX track, the riverside, an outdoor volleyball court, rugby field and benches under newly planted shade trees.  The city park beach is a major tubing point for arrivals and departures for you and your favorite floating device.

The TCT enters the park from Kettle River Drive on the west on a steep footpath past a stone monument.  It leaves the park on the east side and travels up a lane past 3rd to 2nd street.
