EVENT: Humber Bay Shores Park Trail Improvements and Bicycle Connections


Wednesday, April 16, 2014 – 17:3021:00

Humber Bay Shores Park Trail Improvements and Bicycle Connections

The City of Toronto invites you to learn more and give your input on several projects to improve the trails and cycling connections in Humber Bay Shores Park, to and from the Waterfront and along Lake Shore Boulevard West:

1. Humber Bay Shores Park & Trails Improvement
Upgrades are needed to accommodate the increased popularity of this important waterfront park and trail system. We are looking into improvements on and around the trails, as well as possible on-street cycling connections along Marine Parade Drive and Waterfront Drive. Planting and restoration in the garden area immediately south of Jean Augustine Park will also be discussed.

2. Stanley Ave. Contra-flow Bicycle Lane
We are planning installation of a contra-flow bike lane on Stanley Avenue. No negative impacts to parking or traffic operations are anticipated. The contra-flow bike lane will allow bicycles to travel two-ways, but remain one-way for motor vehicles. This project has been approved by Council and is planned for installation this year.

3. Waterfront Trail Connection on Lake Shore Blvd. W.
We are investigating potential cycling improvements along Lake Shore Boulevard West to close a gap in the Waterfront Trail between Norris Crescent and First Street.

Both Humber Bay Shores Park and Lake Shore Boulevard West projects are at early stages. No design decisions have been made and additional public consultations will take place in the near future.

While there are a range of important subjects related to the park and waterfront that could be discussed, we will be focusing on trails for this consultation.
