Standley Lake Regional Park is a treasured open space and aquatic recreational facility in the city. As the steward of this facility and tasked with managing the recreational programming at the site, the city is looking to select the best trail alignment to complete the trail around the lake. The result will provide a trail that respects the pristine landscape, park neighbors and wildlife that the community can enjoy.  

The Standley Lake Loop Trail Alignment planning process is a seven month planning process that started in December 2018 and is expected to be complete by June 2019. The project tasks and milestones are shown below.
