The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY -

The pub­lic is in­vited to join the chair of the parks, recre­ation and leisure ac­tiv­i­ties com­mit­tee, coun­cil­lor Mitchell Tweel, for a win­ter walk along the new Vic­to­ria Board­walk on Sun­day.

The event, hosted in as­so­ci­a­tion with Bea­cons­field His­toric Home, will be­gin at 2 p.m.

“Be­tween 2 and 4 p.m., come warm up in the Bea­cons­field Car­riage House with free hot choco­late and cook­ies or spend some time on the newly com­pleted board­walk,” a news re­lease states.

The work on the board­walk in­cluded the re­moval of the old board­walk, im­prov­ing the drainage, up­grad­ing the stringers, up­grad­ing the deck­ing, widen­ing it and up­grad­ing the ma­te­rial below and be­hind the benches.

The walk is part of the Char­lot­te­town parks and recre­ation depart­ment’s 2016 win­ter ac­tive cam­paign. It in­cludes other free ac­tiv­i­ties de­signed to en­cour­age peo­ple of all ages to be more ac­tive dur­ing the win­ter months. There is snow­shoe­ing, a 10-week Learn to Run pro­gram, crosscoun­try ski­ing and skat­ing.

De­tails of the cam­paign can be found on the City’s web­site at www.char­lot­te­town.ca by click­ing on the Win­ter Ac­tiv­i­ties but­ton (Di­rect URL: www.char­lot­te­town.ca/win­ter­ac­tive.php). Out­door ac­tiv­i­ties are weather de­pen­dent.
