null 350 trees to be planted along urban K&P Trail
November 17, 2016 -
City of Kingston contractors are planting 350 new trees and 750 shrubs this month along the newly constructed portions of the urban K&P Trail.
"We've made good progress on the trail this fall and are on schedule to complete landscaping and paving of the trail by the end of the year," says Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development.
Residents will notice this work taking place:
- The paving of the trail in Doug Fluhrer Park. This is set to take place in the last two weeks of November, weather-permitting.
- The restoration of the old gravel lane from Douglas Fluhrer Park to Cataraqui Street. The contractor has been using the old gravel lane to access the construction zone. It is being restored to ensure that it drains properly and is safe for pedestrians and cyclists who use this link.
Vehicle control barriers will be installed on this lane to allow cyclists and pedestrians to pass through, but not cars.
