This pilot project provides residents the opportunity to get outdoors to exercise and get some fresh air, while practicing safe physical distancing. The following also applies:
- This section of the parkway should not become a drive-to destination, it should only be accessed by biking or walking.
- The parkway should be used as the NCC’s multi-use pathways are used, with the yellow centre line delineating direction; keep your right.
