October 28, 2013

The Town of Pinedale Park & Tree Board dedicated the new Burzlander Creekside Pathway on Saturday, October 26th. The new half-mile path follows the west side of Pine Creek along the length of Boyd Skinner Park and incorporates the recently acquired land on the west side of the creek corridor which expanded the park by 18 acres.

Portions of the pathway are packed road base lined along the edges by logs. From Harmony Bridge north, the walk includes many pretty creek-side views through the open tree grove ending at Wilson Street. The south side pathway opens into a grassy riparian area with views of ponds, cattails, reeds and willow habitat with the snow-capped Wind River Mountains in the distance. The south end of the new pathway ends at Agate Street.

The entire area is habitat for big game and many bird species. Deer and moose are often seen. The area is a bird-lovers delight with many kinds of waterfowl and wetland bird species frequenting the marshy pond areas. Many species of migratory ducks, Canadian Geese, Sandhill Cranes, herons, redwing blackbirds, chickadees, hawks, Osprey and eagles are often seen. Winter tracks in snow will no doubt reveal use by rabbits, fox, coyotes and an occasional bobcat, bear and mountain lion.

The pathway features include a footbridge, park benches for resting, and a set of horseshoe pits on the south end. The path has five new walk-in entrance points on the west side residential neighborhood. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash at all times and pet owners must clean up their petís waste droppings. Doggie disposal bags and discard boxes are available at the park entrances.

The park is a project of the Town of Pinedale Park & Tree Board and improvements have been in the works for several years. Tree clearing and pathway construction work was done by Lightnin Logging owned by Doug Strike. The cost of building the new pathway and footbridge was $29,900.
