About the West Toronto Railpath: The City of Toronto is working on a planning and design study for the extension of the West Toronto Railpath running along the Kitchener (Georgetown) GO Transit rail corridor in the West End of the City. Phase 1 of the West Toronto Railpath opened in 2008 and has gained much interest from local community users and tourists alike. It extends from Cariboo Avenue to Dundas Street West – a distance of approximately 2.1 km. Phase 2 of the Railpath is proposed to extend this multi-use trail by approximately 3.2 km to the Stanley Park / Bathurst St area, intersecting a wide range of Toronto neighbourhoods – Junction Triangle, Brockton, Beaconsfield Village, West Queen West, Trinity Bellwoods, Niagara, Roncesvalles, Parkdale, Liberty Village and Fort York.
In addition to SvN, the project team conducting the environmental assessment study for the West Toronto Railpath Extension includes:
