The boardwalk was designed to provide an outdoor classroom for nature study and recreation in a natural forest environment. Interpretative boards on the flora and fauna found in the forest , bum rest, scenic view and picnic points are features located along the boardwalk.
Construction of the Lower Peirce boardwalk began in Nov 1998 and completed in Jun 1999. The boardwalk was routed and built on existing trails to elevate the compaction and soil erosion caused by the overuse of these trails in the forest. This will continue to ensure the protection floral and fauna on the forest floor with minimum impact by humans.
