City offers up spill over parking options for Rushbrook Trail users

With the latest addition to the Prince Rupert trail system now open the City of Prince Rupert has provided an update on parking options for those that are looking to use the east side trail from Rushbrook Floats to Seal Cove.

As most in town are aware, the Rushbrook area is particularly congested through the summer months, with few parking options available owing to the volume of trucks and trailers that purchase parking space both at the floats and on the roadway along George Hills Way and Drydock road

With that ongoing concern of the summer calendar, the City has advised that parking is available at the Seal Cove end of the trail, with the City designating a City lot near the Seaplane base as a potential option for those travelling to the trail by Car.

That new parking option near the Seaplane base will be available year round.

The parking update comes just as the Official Opening for the Rushbrook Trail is set to take place, with the City also noting that those planning to attend this weekend's event can also use the Prince Rupert Curling club parking lot.

As we outlined back on July 3rd, the City and the range of partners that helped to bring the refurbished Rushbrook Trail to life will be hosting the Trail Opening Celebration this Saturday from 11 AM to 12:30

The Grand Opening event is set to take place at the Rushbrook end of the trail.

The new trail has already attracted a large volume of walkers, runners and cyclers as North Coast outdoor enthusiasts explore the work done and the views that it offers of the city's east side shore.

As we noted earlier this month, the completion of the Rushbrook trail compliments much of the work that has already taken place along the city's eastern waterfront, an area of the city which now offers a fairly easy to navigate trail and walkway system from Kwinitsa/Rotary Waterfront Park all the way through to Seal Cove now.
