Hi ‪#‎Frogger15‬ friends and followers!
I hope and trust you are training for the Frogger 15. This week, Iíll be sharing a bit more information on why this fundraiser is so important for residents and visitors of Campbell River, the region, and Vancouver Island. Raising dollars and awareness about Greenways Land Trust, their initiatives and programs, and the Greenways Loop are some of the reasons for hosting the Frogger 15. Below is a description of the Greenways Loop in Campbell River. I recommend taking a stroll, run, or ride along it. If youíre looking for some solo time, the Beaver Lodge Lands, ERT, and Jubilee sections can be quite peaceful; the Seawalk offers spectacular views of Discovery Passage and more of an opportunity to see and interact with residents and visitors; and throughout the Loop, you can find informational signage about the route, the history of the region, and points of interest...

The Greenways Loop

Hi ‪#‎Frogger15‬ friends and followers!

Raising dollars and awareness about Greenways Land Trust, their initiatives and programs, and the Greenways Loop are some of the reasons for hosting the Frogger 15.

About the Greenways Loop:
The Greenways Loop is a 25km recreational trail around the city of Campbell River. It provides an alternative and accessible transportation route around the perimeter of Campbell River that promotes active lifestyles and improves the overall social health of the community.

Planning of the loop began in 1997, with the adoption of the City of Campbell River Official Community Plan. In 2009, Greenways Land Trust was appointed project manager for the southern portion of the loop; the Jubilee Connector.

The Jubilee Connector is 2.5km trail along Jubilee Parkway and Highway 19A that links pedestrians into the Greenways Loop and is stage one of completing the loop. Construction began in 2010, completed in Winter 2010 and officially opened and given back to the city in Spring 2011. The building of this trail included restoration through Willow Creek Park, to reduce the human impact on the waterway and making it a fish-friendly trail.

This stage connects South Dogwood Street to the Campbell River welcome sign, linking new communities along Jubilee Parkway. The second stage is designed and waiting for funding. It will continue from the welcome sign to the current end of the Rotary Seawalk at Maryland Drive. This stage will complete the loop and allow access from all neighbourhoods in Campbell River.

I consider myself blessed to live in this region Ė so many opportunities to get out and enjoy our natural amenities. If you see me out on the trails or on the Greenways Loop in my orange Frogger 15 shirt, remember to smile, say hello, and/or chat with me about anything Iím blogging about.

Happy ‪#‎running‬! #Frogger15 ‪#‎CampbellRiver‬ ‪#‎ExploreBC‬
