Boundary Bog Trail Boardwalk Project

The existing Boundary Bog trail boardwalk is at the end of it's life-cycle. This purpose of the project is to remove and rebuild the existing boardwalk. The new boardwalk will be two feet wider than the old one; increasing accessibility, safety, and enjoyment for all visitors. The new boardwalk will float; reducing the effect of frost heave which has unlevelled the current boardwalk and has created unsafe conditions. As one of the most popular trails in Prince Albert National Park, aesthetics and safety are paramount to this project. The goal is to create a safe experience for visitors that pleases the eye and compliments nature. This will be achieved by closely following the current footprint to minimize environmental impact, create smooth curves, and accent trail flow.
Tasks anticipated for the boardwalk construction:
- Undertaking selective tree removal
- Demolition and removal of old boardwalk and disposal off-site
- Minor grading of trail sections for boardwalk removal and for delivery of new material to work site
- Construction of new boardwalks and viewing platform
- Rerouting and construction of short trail sections to align existing trail with boardwalk
- Restoration and reclamation of abandoned trail sections
- Installation of new wayfinding signs and interpretive displays
