This weekend good time to visit Donalda

Breathtaking scene – Donalda residents decided to share this awesome scenery with visitors and tourists and are now opening this area as a hiking trail this weekend.

Donalda will be inaugurating its “hiking trail” on Saturday, Aug. 21, with a series of events that will allow participants to get to know closely the 120-acre area, which is home to some unique environmental features.

Activities planned for the day will begin around 1 p.m. with “survival rock” training, which is described by organizers as a fun event.

Fireworks will accompany the ribbon cutting at 3 p.m. according to a statement by the Donalda and District Community Promotion Society.

The inauguration will be followed by a walk through the trail taking in the sights of the coulee and Willow Canyon and participants in the walk can spend as much time as they want in the area.

Visitors will be allowed to paint rocks and if they get attached to their work they will even be able to take them home.

Those willing to participate are reminded that there are no washrooms as yet on the trail or in the Coulee and water and mosquito repellant are two must-bring items.

The day will conclude with a dinner which will start at 5 p.m.

At about the same time, awards will be presented at this year’s Donalda Annual Bench Fair.
