UPDATE: New boardwalk, other improvements unveiled at Cooper Marsh

Federal government funding of about $125,000 helped to rebuild widen, and lengthen boardwalks and build new viewing platforms throughout the marshlands was provided to the $290,000 project.

“I was up on one of the viewing platforms and it’s just a beautiful view,” said Goodyear.

The boardwalk was in a sorry state before the project, with boards missing or in need of replacement because of disrepair.

The improvements to Cooper Marsh are expected to increase the number of bird-watchers and naturalists, which in turn will support the local economy, said Lauzon.

New boardwalks have been tailored for visitors with accessibility needs, making it safer and more accessible.
