Parksville wraps up shore restoration at Arbutus Point

Work at end of Community Park finished ahead of schedule

The City of Parksville announced last week that beach protection work near the labyrinth at Arbutus Point in the Parksville Community Park has now been completed.

This restoration work was necessary to protect the beach from the effects of erosion, the city stated in a written news release. The project, meant to result in a more sustainable shoreline, involved an 850-square metre area of Parksville Bay.

The Arbutus Point work included placement of riprap, granular beach fill and ballasted large logs, as well as the removal of an existing lock-block seawall and installation of ten metres of storm pipe.

The work was performed by Parksville Heavy Equipment.

To comply with environmental regulations, the city was given a four-week window in August, city communications director Deb Tardiff said.

“We are pleased the work was completed well ahead of schedule,” said Tardiff. “We do realize this is a busy time of the summer for the Community Park and sincerely appreciate the patience and cooperation of our residents and visitors during construction.”
