Iron Horse Trail


Part of the Iron Horse Trail is undergoing a transformation - changes that will enhance the experience for those who enjoy traveling the pathway on foot and by bike.

Over the past few years, you've told us what improvements you would like us to make to the trail. Those recommendations make up part of our Iron Horse Trail Improvement Strategy.

Check out our video to see what's in store for the trail.

 2018 Construction 

The Iron Horse Trail central section is currently closed for construction and improvements.

Section 1:

Glasgow Street to Victoria Street

  • Trail has been reconstructed and paved.  This section is currently open for public use.
  • There will be some temporary closures in the future for the completion of concrete work, site furnishings and landscaping.

Section 2:

Victoria Street South to Queen Street South – Anticipated reopening in mid-August.

  • Detour: West Avenue to Homewood Avenue to Queen Street South.
  Central Section - Gage Street to Queen Street

Work will begin this summer to improve the section of the trail that runs between Victoria Street and Queen Street, past Victoria Park. When complete, this section will feature:

  • Wider, re-paved surfaces;
  • Larger roadway crossing;
  • Wayfinding and identification signage;
  • Henry Sturm Greenway parkette design;
  • Victoria Park parking lot and entrance improvements.
