Lesueur Creek 80' Multi-club Bridge install near WP#7
SW Ghost Area just North of the TransAlta road near WP#7. A 80' steel bridge was installed by multiple clubs. The bridge was washed out of Fish creek park in Calgary by the heavy floods of 2005 and donated By Parks to help repair the Ghost trail system. The various clubs raised money to cover transportation and installation funding.
