Kids’ creek talks boost Bowker

A design to restore Bowker Creek alongside Oak Bay High school is underway and students will be able to participate in the process

A design to restore Bowker Creek alongside Oak Bay High school is underway and students will be able to participate in the process.

Oak Bay council awarded the project to Kerr Wood Leidal for $107,355, plus $3,420 for the additional student education component. The total cost, $110,775, will be covered by a Union of British Columbia Municipalities grant.

According to information provided to council, the redesign will start in this month with five creek and career workshops, educating students about a career in engineering, landscape architecture, planning and biology.

This will give the students background knowledge and skills to participate in the design charrette in March.


By May, a conceptual design will be presented to Oak Bay council and two community open houses will be held. A final design, ready for tendering, is expected to be complete in June.
