Jasper park allows bicycles, dogs & foot traffic
The trails at Jasper’s new 60-acre park off Hood Road are wide enough to drive your car on - but signage clearly points out that motorized vehicles are against the rules.
That’s because the park, named after former Jasper councilmember Doris Wigington, is meant to have a back-to-nature feel.
“The idea is that you will feel like you’re in a national park, walking on the trails in the woods,” said Jasper Mayor John Weaver. “We want it to be as close to nature as you can get in the city - it’s basically a nature trail.”
