BELTLINE TRAIL DETOUR BELOW MOORE AVENUE

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), on behalf of the City, is preparing to undertake Phases 2 and 3 of channel restoration works along Mud Creek Reach 6. The project area is located within Moore Park Ravine between Moore Avenue and the Heath Street East Pedestrian Bridge.

Implementation is expected to commence in July 2019 and should be completed by March 2020. Final site restoration (i.e. trail restoration and native tree & shrub plantings) will take place during the spring of 2020 as weather conditions permit. In order to avoid the migratory bird nesting period, TRCA will be completing tree removals next week starting on Monday, March 25th.

Due to limited space for construction equipment and the requirement to ensure public safety, TRCA will need to close the section of the Beltline Trail from Moore Avenue to the Heath Street Pedestrian Bridge throughout the construction period.  To minimize inconvenience to trail users, a detour route has been identified on the project information sign.

RAVINE REVITALIZATION

One of the most beautiful aspects of our neighbourhood is the system of ravines. Our 2018 annual general meeting included two third-party presentations about ravine issues:

  • A summary (with slides) of the Toronto Ravine Revitalization Study, which evaluates the health of our ravines. See the PowerPoint explainer.
  • A presentation about an invasive plants species called Japanese Knotweed, which is a “growing” threat to our local plant life See the PowerPoint explainer.
