The dynamic and exciting city of Toronto is a major urban gateway on Lake Ontario. It is home to tourist attractions such as the CN Tower, Royal Ontario Museum, the Art Gallery of Ontario and major theatre productions. Still there are many quiet, natural places to enjoy along the waterfront. Toronto’s Waterfront Trail can be divided into three sections: Etobicoke (west), Toronto (central) and Scarborough (east) based on municipal boundaries prior to the City’s amalgamation.
So what’s new at Chesterton Shores by the Rouge Hill GO Station?
Toronto Region Conservation in partnership with Waterfront Toronto has built a new off-road stretch of trail that will continue from Chesterton Shores to mouth of the Rouge River. It is a fantastic new stretch of path that we encourage you to enjoy!
For multi-use paths in Parks, the bylaws are straight forward. Motor-assisted bicycles are not allowed on any parks trail (including the Waterfront, Don, Humber etc.) and may be ticked $30 if they are caught by a bylaw enforcement officer. (Municipal Code Chapter 608). Bicycles using bike lanes must be propelled by muscular power. With this in mind, e-bikes may use bike lanes, provided they are using muscular power alone. (Municipal Code Chapter 886)
