Active Transportation Plan
Improving and expanding High River's Active Transportation Network
High River's first Active Transportation Plan was formally adopted by Council on November 27, 2023.
Town staff teams will begin to implement key projects in 2024.
“High River has beautiful, interconnected parks, trails and greenspaces enjoyed by a wide diversity of people year ‘round. As the Town implements this plan, we will incorporate the community feedback to ensure it reflects the ideas and suggestions from our residents,” noted Mayor Snodgrass. “I am sure people will appreciate new opportunities to use and enjoy our pathways and transportation network.” Mayor Craig Snodgrass
High River received $50,000 in grant funding for this project from Infrastructure Canada.
