Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), The W. Garfield Weston Foundation and the City of Toronto collectively announced plans for the development of one of Canada's largest urban linear parks. The Meadoway is a project that will promote recreational activity, while also serving as a connection between downtown Toronto and Rouge National Urban Park in Scarbrough. In total, the scheduled development will bridge four ravines, 15 parks and 34 neighborhoods. In addition, the project will boast more than 1,000 diverse species of flora and fauna for a one-of-a-kind nature-infused urban experience.
As far as urban linear parks go, the development of the Meadoway is truly ground-breaking. The green initiative is to replace a 16-kilometer hydro corridor.
