The Argentia Beach Nature Trail construction project has been approved for $26,684 via the County of Wetaskiwin’s Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) funds.

On Aug. 9, 2016, county council approved a request from the Argentia Beach Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Society for funds for the Graves Wildlife Sanctuary Nature Trail.

However, council stated its acceptance of the project hinged on the society adding a parking/staging component to the project to ensure users from outside the community could easily access the trail system.

On March 13, 2017, county council received a letter from Municipal Affairs confirming that the Argentia Beach Nature Trail construction project, submitted under the MSI capital program, was approved.

Director of Leisure and Community Services Geoff Lynch presented the news to council during its April 4 regular meeting.

“How did that parking/staging area go?” Coun. Larry McKeever asked Lynch, as he was curious how the requirement was received by Argentia Beach.

Lynch says the idea of the staging/parking area went over “very well.”
