Cochrane’s wait for the completion of their Commando Lake Boardwalk is now over.

The now completed boardwalk, which spans 250 metres, connects existing trails to the Memorial Park Path and also the Railway Street Multi-Use Path.

Mayor Peter Politis says the most fabulous part of the boardwalk is the fact that the cost to taxpayers was completely offset by funding.

Politis says they are hoping they can create more traffic in their downtown core, but also create more activity amongst their community.

The Grand Opening celebration takes place Friday, November 3rd beginning at 12:00pm at the corner of 7th Avenue and Third Street.
