Upper Highland Creek Access Improvements

“The Pan Am Path is a multi-use recreational trail network which spans the City of Toronto. Most of Pan Am Path runs through river valleys and along hydro corridors. However, certain sections of the Pan Am Path detour along municipal roads. In the summer of 2014, the City of Toronto and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) began planning a trail connection project within Morningside Park in order to develop an important connection to the Pan Am Path through the Highland Creek Valley Corridor. (…) Construction will start July 2019, with expected completion in fall 2020.” From City of Toronto Page.

East Don Build – Connecting West to East Toronto

” The City of Toronto is working with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) to design and construct a multi-use trail system within the East Don Corridor between the north end of Charles Sauriol Conservation Area, the Lower Don Trail System, and Gatineau Corridor Trail. Under the Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) – Phase 1, the Government of Canada is investing up to $11.25 million for the East Don Trail project. The City of Toronto is matching this funding contribution….Phase 1 and 2 is anticipated to be completed by fall 2020, subject to suitable weather conditions. Although Phase 3 was approved during the EA process, detailed design has not been completed and implementation of Phase 3 is subject to approvals and budget availability.” From the East Don Project page here.
