The Greenways Loop is a 25km recreational trail around the city of Campbell River. It provides an alternative and accessible transportation route around the perimeter of Campbell River that promotes active lifestyles and improves the overall social health of the community.
Planning of the loop began in 1997, with the adoption of the City of Campbell River Official Community Plan. In 2009, Greenways Land Trust was appointed project manager for the southern portion of the loop; the Jubilee Connector.
The Jubilee Connector is 2.5km trail along Jubilee Parkway and Highway 19A that links pedestrians into the Greenways Loop and is stage one of completing the loop. Construction began in 2010, completed in Winter 2010 and officially opened and given back to the city in Spring 2011. The building of this trail included restoration through Willow Creek Park, to reduce the human impact on the waterway and make it a fish-friendly trail.
This stage connects South Dogwood Street to the Campbell River welcome sign, linking new communities along Jubilee Parkway. The second stage is designed and waiting for funding. It will continue from the welcome sign to the current end of the Rotary Seawalk at Maryland Drive. This stage will complete the loop and allow access from all neighbourhoods in Campbell River.
