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.

NEWS: Nearby bikeshare station may raise your home’s value

Having a bike share station outside your front door might do more than give you a convenient way to ride to work — it might also boost the value of your home. According to a new study from McGill University, residential units in Montreal are worth more if they’re close to a Bixi station, Montreal’s […]


NEWS: Cyclist dead following 2-vehicle collision on Dufferin St.

The cyclist wasn’t on the road (standing on sidewalk), but car struck a hydro pole, which then killed them. Awful. A cyclist has been confirmed dead by York Regional Police following a vehicle collision on Dufferin St. north of Steeles Ave. on Monday evening. Two cyclists were on the sidewalk corner of Dufferin St. and […]


OH YEAH! The Viaduct bikelanes get MORE green paint!

Well, I don’t know what’s going on.  This is a level of paying attention to cycling infrastructure on the Bloor Viaduct that, quite frankly, I thought I’d never see (and it pissed me off, often). But now, after the green paint that was laid down late last week in the bikelane, there is now MORE […]


FACEPALM: City closes Hoskin bikelane for PanAm Games

What’s a great idea?  Closing down one of the busiest bikelanes in the city and not providing a detour that’s safe for cyclists (and pedestrians) because of the “short distance of the inconvenience”. A sign erected on June 25 indicates the closure of the Hoskin bike lane for two months during the Pan Am Games. […]

OH YEAH: Easy Bikes – A New Name for Upright Bikes?

Interesting article from Momentum Mag from earlier this month: Did the Wall Street Journal just rename the most accessible, useful, and comfortable of all bicycle styles? Upright bicycles, sometimes referred to by Momentum Mag as city bikes, are hands down the best style of bicycle for daily use. A relaxed frame geometry and swept-back handlebars combine to […]
