Parks & Trails Active Mobility Planning 

Northern Rockies Regional Municipality is planning major accessibility improvements to Art Fraser Memorial Park and Andy Bailey Regional Park. 

The Andy Bailey Regional Park improvements are currently in the detailed design stage and construction is anticipated to occur in Spring of 2024. 

The Government of Canada’s award to the Northern Rockies Parks & Trails Active Mobility Study of $50,000 was used to undertake site surveys, public engagement, and community consultation in preparing concept plans highlighting major accessibility improvements and new accessible pathways around Art Fraser Community Park and Andy Bailey Regional Park. Community engagement sessions and park assessments in the summer 2022 have informed draft concept plans. Andy Bailey Regional Park and Art Fraser Memorial Park Concept Designs


Through the Northern Rockies Parks and Trails Active Mobility Study and ongoing Park Improvement Projects the NRRM is investing in community well-being. Enhancements and upgrades to these parks will open more opportunities for diverse and inclusive participation in community and regional spaces. Community engagement throughout the Study was key in understanding barriers and opportunities for participation in healthy lifestyles in the NRRM.
