Press Release


Centennial Park trail closures in effect April 9-16, 2024

Posted on:

Access to Centennial Park trail from Sakwatamau Drive through to the 47 Street entrance will be closed April 9 through April 16, 2024.  The area will be closed so that tree clearing can be completed in preparation for Phase 1 of the Centennial Park Pathway Improvement Project.

  • Residents that back on to the project area, including Sakwatamau Drive, Baxter Drive, Feero Drive and Chickadee Drive, may hear and see activity in the park area behind their property.
  • The trail closure (Pumphouse Trail) will be marked with signs and barricades.  Please do not enter the work site and avoid the active work zone as tree clearing will be completed through the closure period. 

Questions can be directed to Andre Blanchard, an E-Construction representative, at 780-983-3244.

The Centennial Park Pathway Improvement Project will be completed in phases over the next three years and will involve widening of the pathway, as well as surface and drainage improvements.  This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.

Residents are encouraged to use alternate walking routes in the area.  For further information on the trail system please refer to the Whitecourt Trail Map.
