Last year the RM of Stanley made it a priority to expand the pathway system in Schanzenfeld, connecting it to the City of Winkler's pathway network.
The new path is ready for use, as the majority of the work was completed last fall.
Some cleanup work will be done shortly, as well as the completion of landscaping.
Stanley received a $104,000 grant through the province's Building Sustainable Communities Program last year to help cover the cost of the project.
The project included constructing an 8-foot wide limestone path along Road 10N at the north end of Schanzenfeld, west to Road 22w, and then north along Road 22 west up to the Winkler dike, a total of 2.5 kilometres.
The rm says they anticipate the path to be well used.

Compost Drop Off program streamlined for residents
Council for the RM has also made a change to its Compost Drop-Off program. Stanley is continuing to provide free compost drop-off at Green Opportunities (formerly Penner Waste), however, this year, a voucher is not required.
