Restoration work at the Parksville labyrinth

Work must be completed by Aug. 31

The City of Parksville has begun beach protection work near the labyrinth at Arbutus Point in the Parksville Community Park.

To comply with environmental regulations, the protection work must be completed by Aug. 31.

This beach restoration work, necessary to protect the park from the effects of erosion, will result in a more sustainable shoreline.

The project, which involves about an 850-square metre area of Parksville bay, includes placement of riprap, granular beach fill and ballasted large logs at Arbutus Point. As well, the site will require removal of an existing lock-block seawall, installation of 10 metres of storm pipe and construction of a 200-metre gravel access road along the north side of the kite field.

During construction, the labyrinth will be closed and the city is making every effort to minimize disruption to events and activities in the Community Park near Arbutus Point and on the kite field.
