Summertime Trails in Toronto



Why not enjoy summer in Toronto doing outdoor activities such as jogging and biking?

The Martin Goodman Trail is a multi-use path along the waterfront in Toronto that stretches about 56 kilometres from one end of the city to the other along the lake shore. The trail opened in 1984 and was named in memory of the former President and Editor-In-Chief of the Toronto Star who passed away in 1981. The trail is part sidewalk and part running/bike path along lake Ontario from Humber Bay Arch Bridge in the west to the Rouge River in the east. It also runs parallel to the boardwalk and passes through Cherry Beach.

In fact, the trail is part of the 730-kilometre Waterfront Trail that connects 41 communities from Niagara to Quebec along the Canadian Shores of Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. Great for running, it has some beautiful spots with great views of the water and the city.

In 2009, Waterfront Toronto opened a newly created stretch of the Martin Goodman Trail at Ontario Place. It was designed by leading landscape architects Janet Rosenberg and Associates. The 1.3 km runs parallel to LakeShore Boulevard through Ontario Place from Marilyn Bell Park to Coronation Park at Strachan Avenue. This attractive tree-lined stretch is barrier-free and multi-functional accommodating a wide range of recreational activities.

There are so many reason why Toronto is a great place to live and the Martin Goodman Trail is definitely one of them. Come live by the Waterfront and enjoy the trail. Call me to discuss investment properties by the water.
