Tues, June 28th: Trails and the Brickworks Event

This post is courtesy of Paul Young of the Public Space Workshop:

If you have tried to get to the Brickworks or Rosedale Valley Road by bike or on foot you know the challenges.  This workshop will highlight work underway to improve connections and it will identify additional priority improvements. If you want to learn more or have ideas please come! It is open to all.

This is an invitation to a workshop for those with an interest in improving walking and cycling connections in the Lower Don Valley – between communities, the trails and the Brickworks. Please feel free to invite others.  Note the boundaries are roughly Moore Ave. to Queen St. along the lower Don Valley . Surrounding councillors have been invited.

We have a range of stakeholders including Ward cycling groups, former members of the Don Task Force, City staff from Transportation, Parks and Public Health. It would be great if you can come too.
