Meewasin Trail Upgrades - River Landing to the Weir: Phase 1A from Queen Street to the Riverworks weir (Duke Street) is now open. Phase 1B will continue the trail upgrade from Queen Street south to the Mendel parking lot in the spring of 2018. Phase 1B will address significant safety issues on the trail including narrow width, steep grades (non-accessible), proximity to the street, blind corners and encroaching vegetation. For more information on the proposed improvements see below.

The restoration work will take a number of years.
