The fences will be going up in Bower Woods to prevent more damage to the trees and bank along the creek.
The off-the-beaten track area is just north of Molly Banister Drive and can be accessed through the Waskasoo Trail System at Sunnybrook.
Red Deer city council approved the $208,000 for remediation as part of the 2015 capital budget.
Shelley Gagnon, the city’s Recreation, Parks and Culture manager, said some BMX riders have been going off trail and have created ramps and jumps that are beginning to take a toll on the natural areas.
The money will be used to temporarily restrict access the natural area to facilitate damage repair and revegetation. Work will get underway next spring.
In future years, the city will conduct remediation to the Barrett Park Escarpment, Riverside Drive, Waskasoo Drive, Piper Creek and other natural areas.
