December 2020 - Construction on Gord's Garden complete
The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District is celebrating the completion of a seven-kilometre section of the Sea to Sky Trail, with the construction of Gord’s Garden.
Gord’s Garden is named in honour of the Sea to Sky Trail’s first project manager, and long-time trails advocate, Gordon McKeever.
The trail section is located between Whistler and Pemberton and follows the Green River, passing through a prehistoric rock avalanche site known as the Rock Garden.
This portion of the Sea to Sky Trail construction was funded with a grant from Trans Canada Trail and the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District. With this latest addition, there are now 126 kilometres of Sea to Sky Trail constructed between Squamish and D’Arcy, B.C.
