Ontario Greenway

The Ontario Greenway features raised crosswalks, traffic circles, speed humps, and landscaped corner bulges to calm traffic.

Schools along the route have participated in the development of the greenway by helping to plan demonstration gardens.

The street gardens at Ontario Street and 27th Avenue East have been planted with native species to compliment the outdoor classroom at General Wolfe Elementary School.

The children’s artwork of butterflies and bugs has been etched into rocks that form part of the design.

Where is the Ontario Greenway?

The Ontario Greenway follows the popular Ontario Bikeway linking False Creek to 59th Avenue, connecting parks, schools and community centers along the way.
