The Greenbelt Master Plan proposes the creation of a 56-kilometre pathway that will provide a continuous and varied recreational and educational experience along the entire length of Canada’s Capital Greenbelt.

As part of the Greenbelt Pathway project, we recently completed a three-metre-wide, rural, stone dust pathway between Woodroffe Avenue and the Black Rapids Lockstation.

This new segment adds 4.3 kilometres to the 28 kilometres already completed on the proposed Greenbelt Pathway.

About the segment

  • Incorporates existing trails, forest access roads and recreational pathways
  • Facilitates activities such as walking and extended hiking, cross-country skiing and cycling
  • Maintains a rustic farm lane atmosphere, in keeping with the Greenbelt landscape
  • Includes pedestrian signalized crossings at Merivale Road and at Prince of Wales Drive.

Universal accessibility was a priority throughout the design of the new pathway, and key visitor attractions and segments of the pathway are accessible.
