The Ontario Greenway is a scenic walking and cycling connection featuring 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 plan demonstration gardens.
The street gardens at Ontario St and 27th Ave 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 is along Ontario St, following the popular Ontario Bikeway linking False Creek to 59th Ave, and planned to connect to Fraser River, connecting parks, schools, and community centres along the way.
We're planning improvements to help make the Ontario Greenway more comfortable for walking, cycling, and rolling and reduce motor vehicle short-cutting during construction of the Broadway Subway.
Thank you to everyone that shared your input by attending one of the pop-up sessions or by taking the online survey. In late spring, final designs will be shared online along with a consultation summary that summarizes what we heard during engagement.
