Bartley Smith Greenway Trail

The City of Vaughan is working towards creating a seamless and connected network of city-wide trails – including the Bartley Smith Greenway Trail, a key component of the Vaughan Super Trail. To help achieve this, the City is completing a feasibility study to determine how to close a three-kilometre gap in the Bartley Smith Greenway Trail between McNaughton Road and Rutherford Road.


The study will identify and evaluate options to connect the trail and establish a preferred trail route to advance to detailed design and construction. When complete, the Bartley Smith Greenway Trail will run continuously from Teston Road in the north to Steeles Avenue in the south, supporting natural and cultural heritage, recreation opportunities, cycling, tourism and overall well-being of residents.


Join the conversation

To date, community input has been extremely valuable. Ideas and feedback have been shared through a survey and by attending an Open House, and the City has revised the proposed trail alignment based on the feedback shared.


On Thursday, July 7, the City hosted an in-person Open House and invited the community to view the revised trail alignment, proposed features and amenities as well as the draft implementation approach.


Thank you to those who attended. If you were unable to attend or have more to say, you are encouraged to watch a video presentation, review the open house materials and use a commenting form to share your thoughts until Thursday, July 21.
