If you are a hiker, walker, jogger, cyclist, or simply someone who loves nothing more than getting outside in the beauty of nature, the Cor Van Raay LINK Pathway is for everyone.
ABOUT THE PATHWAY
The Cor Van Raay LINK Pathway will offer a natural recreational corridor for people of all ages and abilities. This stunning pathway will span 15 km linking the City of Lethbridge with the Town of Coaldale. This new planned pathway makes it possible for you to walk, bike or roller blade between these two urban communities, along the SMRID irrigation canal enjoying the rural landscape in between. Trail users will find facilities such as benches, interpretive signs, and picnic shelters along the way. A safe alternative to riding or walking along the highways in the county.

Need for funding
While the efforts of many people gave this community pathway life, the need for ongoing fundraising is real.

Benefits of supporting the Cor Van Raay LINK pathway are many and vary greatly. The pathway offers educational, recreational, and historical values as it stretches through some of the most productive agricultural land in the country, which has long been part of this region and supports our local economy.
