Hi fellow BCRPAers:

I am looking for standards for bridge construction for nature trails. Primary users are hikers, horse riders, and mountain bikers. Anyone know of any references?

The BCRPA Playground Safety Awareness Course is for anyone who requires a hands-on overview on playground safety and current issues being faced today. This program is designed to meet the needs of a broad cross-section of participants and can be delivered at your facilities. The curriculum in this course will provide the education and hands-on training necessary for parks and recreation staff to deal with the majority of risk issues that their department might experience.

You will learn about:
- Detecting, analyzing and noting hazards and non-compliant situations

Bike Parks and BMX tracks are now being developed on municipal lands in BC. In fact, at the same time some BMX facilities are opening, others are closing due to liability losses.

There has been a significant rise of liability losses citing improper care of playing fields, BMX/Skate Parks, waterfronts and trails. Register for the Managing Summer Risks training program to discover how municipalities can balance the risks and rewards of summer use of parks. This session benefits all parks management and staff as well as parks and recreation board members and elected officials.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is pleased to announce the continuation of the Cycling Infrastructure Partnerships Program (CIPP) for 2014-15. The CIPP is a cost-shared program where the Government of British Columbia will partner with local governments in the construction of new transportation cycling infrastructure. Submission Deadline: September 30, 2014 for projects that can be completed within one year of funding approval.

I'm interested in who uses contrators to conduct preventative maintenance on their synthetic fields. We are looking at tendering a field maintenance contract for our fields
