Walking Track

View the full COVID-19 Walking Track Safety Plan here.

The Wayne & Bev Dahlen Walking Track is open. Pre-registration is required (no drop in). 

To facilitate reopening, the schedule is planned with COVID-19 safety protocols in place, using current information and guidelines from provincial and national agencies, the Provincial Health Officer and local health authorities. 

Customer and staff safety is our priority – as COVID-19 is unpredictable, we will continue to adapt or change our protocols as needed. We ask for your patience and understanding should changes need to be made due to the evolving situation. 

Due to limited number of people allowed in building, Walking Track sessions are open to residents in Dawson Creek, Pouce Coupe, Area D, Area E and neighboring border communities (Bonanza, Bay Tree, Savanna, Gundy) ONLY.
