Restoration and Enrichment on Victoria Avenue
The graduating class of 2023 has dedicated their end of year project to restoring the Victoria Avenue bike route. The route, which has fallen into disrepair in recent years, has been a favorite for cyclists of all levels looking to explore the scenic beauty of the area. The 2023 class along with Victoria Avenue Forever will be dedicating their fundraising efforts to completing the two major phases of their project.

Add bike repair stations
Replace other metal benches with heat resistant benches
Add water fountains and benches at various locations along Victoria Ave

Add additional lighting
Their efforts will have a significant impact, with cyclists gaining the comfort of new benches, shade structures, cyclists will also gain a great deal of safety through the additional lighting, emergency phones and bike repair stations. This dedicated team is a shining example of the power of community collaboration and the importance of preserving our natural spaces for all to enjoy.
