Rail Trail Proposal

West Scarborough Railpath

The proposed West Scarborough Railpath is envisioned as running across existing public lands such as the hydro corridor adjacent to the Line 2 subway from Victoria Park to Kennedy, connecting the Taylor Massey Creek, Warden Woods, the Meadoway, and all the communities in between. The route will also pass by some notable existing and future housing projects, both private development and public HousingNow sites. It would provide local residents with access to nature, transit, and more.


Background Information 

Below you will find a brief history by Sam Wong of the Warden Station Neighbourhood Association:

An interesting helpful piece of history: That trail has been proposed since 1972, with a student-ed proposal for a bike trail all the way from Warden subway station to the Metro Zoo.

A City of Toronto Staff Report which outlines recommendations and steps required to create a path that connects the rail path and rail bridge to the adjacent neighbourhoods. 




An interesting mini documentary produced by Cycle Toronto as part of the Scarborough Voices series that will show how people in Scarborough feel about cycling there.
