Have you noticed the new sign on the Friendship Trail?
Decolonizing Ts’zil not only shares the mountain’s traditional St’át’y’emc name and meaning but also the piece of history of how it came to be known under a different name, Mount Currie.
The project was initiated by the Whistler and Pemberton Literacy Partnership (WPLP)*, managed by Cindy Filipenko’s team with direction from Georgina Dan from the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre on content creation and funded by Decoda Literacy Solutions.
Thank you to this group of dedicated community members for their work.
The Pemberton area is home to a diverse assortment of parks and trails suitable for hiking, biking and horseback riding.
The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District is directly involved in the development and maintenance of the following parks & trails:
- Valley Loop Trail
- Friendship Trail
- Gates Lake Community Park
- Riverside Park
- Riverside Wetlands/Ském’em Community Park
The Village of Pemberton maintains several community and neighbourhood parks. Tourism Pemberton is another great resource for learning about summer and winter recreation opportunities available in the Pemberton area.
Many of the trails around Pemberton are developed or maintained in partnership with the Pemberton Valley Trails Association (PVTA). The PVTA has developed a Pemberton Valley Trail Map, which can be downloaded from their website or purchased from the Pemberton Bike Co.
