GABLE BEACH NORTH WORK
November 1, 2020
The DLC are looking at invasive species in parks and public spaces and are doing targeted removal. They have been working with Ecoscapes as environmental consultants. They were down at Gable Beach North on October 26 and 27th to start a phased removal of the Tree of Heaven which has invaded the area.
This is going to include:
Removal of the large Tree(s) of Heaven which are on the first section of Gable Beach North
Removal of the dead tree by the portable washroom
Specific application of herbicide to Tree of Heaven stumps (applied with a paintbrush, not sprayed)
The other dead trees will remain standing as wildlife habitat, and likewise the fallen branches/old brush behind the washrooms have been identified by Ecoscapes as wildlife habitat/shelter.
In the spring, work will continue to remove the Tree of Heaven suckers which are developing across the beach – it may be multiple year program to get them all out.
The presence of Tree of Heaven (and other invasive species) is widespread and not just confined to parks and public spaces, but to try and tackle all of it, all at once, would be a full time job for the Parks team.
One of the objectives of the new bylaw for tree/natural environment management which is on Council’s Strategic Priorities list, is to encourage and support the removal of invasive species on private land, especially where there are large areas of disturbed soil from development. This hopefully will enable us to limit further ingress of invasive species in to the community as we start to make inroads into removing what we have already.
Any questions, please Cara Reed.
CORAL BEACH / MAKI ROAD TRAIL UPDATE
October 31, 2020
The following is an update from your Councillor Cara Reed.
The gravel was placed down most of the trail yesterday as I am hearing concern about the trail width.
Work is still continuing on the trail, and below is an update from the District Team
Subsequent to rough prep and material placement, the Contractor will perform clean up and finishing work along the trail to clean up the edges by pulling gravel back to the 1.8 metre extents and then placing topsoil along the gravel edge. This will allow revegetation and further softening of the edges over time.
The trail, when done a year or two from now, will look like the trail at Okanagan Centre.
There is more information on the trail construction on the DLC website (link below), including information on management of the culverts/gully at the Coral Beach Road end.

MAKI ROAD TO CORAL BEACH ROAD - TRAIL IMPROVEMENTS
January 20, 2021
Council gave approval within the 2020 budget for trail improvements connecting Maki Road with Coral Beach Road. Work began in May with surveying to stake out the project boundaries and construction will likely begin in late fall.
The project involves the improvement of this important community trail from a nature trail standard to a narrow multi-use standard, creating a more accessible route for residents looking to walk or bike to neighbours’ homes and nearby parks. The proposed route follows an existing right of way connection and is approximately 200m long.
In 2019, a community survey was undertaken by the Carr’s Landing Community & Recreation Association regarding waterfront access and recreation. Improvements to this well-used trail were identified as a high priority for neighbourhood residents.
The trail will be closed for construction beginning the week of October 13th to the end of November.
Additional information can be found on the district website at the following link - MAKI ROAD TO CORAL BEACH ROAD
