A major funding boost is coming to the Cooking Lake-Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area.
The popular hiking destination in Strathcona County is getting a $30,000 upgrade.
“The walking trails at the Blackfoot Provincial Recreation Area are a major draw to our region, but there’s currently some conflict with the pipeline right-of-way,” said Jessica Littlewood, Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA. "This funding will help improve the experience of all trail users."
This year’s provincial funding provides a major boost to parks infrastructure, with $54.2 million for upgrades and repairs to roads, sewers, campground buildings and amenities.
