Work began this week on expansion of the north parking lot at the Pidherny recreation site off Foothills Boulevard.
The project will increase the number of parking spots from 30 to 40, complete with marked spaces. The picnic area as well as the existing fence and boulders that border the lot will be relocated.
The site will remain open to the public during the operation, which is expected to be completed by the middle of October. Parking is also available in the southern lot on Piderny Road, which can be reached via North Nechako Road.
Funding for the project is being provided by Recreation Sites and Trails BC as part of a partnership with the City of Prince George for the management and upkeep of the site.
