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.

 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.
