Parks: Intermittent Closures of Ed Nixon Trail
Over the coming weeks and months Westhills Land Corp., owners of private lands located around a portion of Langford Lake will be working to improve turtle habitat nesting areas including the installation of basking logs, removal of invasive species and the addition of fencing to prevent access to sensitive habitat areas. During this time there will be intermittent closures of the Ed Nixon Trail so the work can be completed in a safe and timely manner. The Trail will only be closed temporarily during periods when work is actively underway. If the trail is not physically barricaded, it remains open for use. City staff will provide timely updates via the City website including updated timelines and project updates. In addition to the turtle habitat area, Westhills will be improving public access to Langford Lake with the addition of a floating dock, a picnic area, additional seating, and bike racks. Once the work is complete, Westhills will be dedicating the park land to the City of Langford for public use.
