The future of BWG Trails - Bradford Times - Ontario, CA

"The statistics support the importance of trails. Seven out of 10 Canadian adults ranked walking as their top physical activity. For youth under 19, trail-supported activities like walking, jogging, running and bicycling were #1.

Those statistics helped guide the new Bradford West Gwillimbury Trails System Master Plan, which was recommended for approval in principle by Council on September 21.

The Master Plan provides a guideline for the development of an interconnected trail system that will link parks, commercial areas, workplaces and residents, and appeal to a wide range of users, year-round.
Stated goals include the promotion and encouragement of healthy outdoor activity, and the enjoyment of the Town's natural, cultural and recreational features, while preserving the environment and providing opportunities for stewardship. ."
