The primary purpose of this Project was the assumption of responsibility for campground & trail maintenance/enhancement for a number of facilities previously managed by the Government of Alberta in the greater Hinton area.

Its objectives included updating Action Plans, maintaining existing facilities, upgrading of several campgrounds and trails, construction of one new interpretive trail , and completion of current year recreation surveys.

During late Spring, Summer, and early Fall of 2003, a three-year Recreation Action Plan was updated for the years 2004 to 2006 inclusive, twenty-three Recreation Sites were managed/maintained, two recreation areas at Fairfax Lake and Watson Creek received major upgrades, and a new silviculture interpretive trail was designed and constructed along the McLeod River.
