FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Community members who have driven by Mathews Park lately may have wondered why the park and paths seem to be closed off.

The answer: city crews are taking the existing gravel trail and upgrading it to a paved lit trail.

The park upgrades were a part of phase 2 of the 92A Street project last year, which included upgrading the street between 87th to 89th Avenues adjacent to Mathews Park, constructing a trail in Mathews Park and the extension of the Sanitary Sewer upgrades to Alaska Highway.

The park work was carried over from last year as crews could not complete the work in the park before the end of the season.

The playground and basketball court are still open during the construction process.
