Tweaking the trail

Trans Canada Trail to go through Wakefield's Louis Rompré Park


Sentiers Wakefield will have until June 15 to complete their planned detour of the 200 metre stretch of The Great Trail of Canada – formerly known as the Trans Canada Trail – between Chemin Riverside and the Centre Wakefield La Pêche through Louis Rompré Park, located behind Kaffé 1870 in Wakefield. All they need is approval from the Ministry of Environment and some dry land to work on.


Hikers and nature enthusiasts will soon no longer have to take a narrow sidewalk along a major roadway while traversing Canada’s Great Trail through Wakefield, according to Sentiers Wakefield President Ken Bouchard, who said the organization is working to detour the trail through Louis Rompré Park and alongside a stream that runs parallel to the park before connecting with the Centre Wakefield La Pêche.
