Ontario Trails News - St. Thomas Elevated Park, Healthy Hikes, Mississauga Parks and Forestry Trails and more Ontario Trails News!


St. Thomas Elevated Park - an OTC Supported Park Projectst. thomas elevated park
The park is to be Canada’s first elevated park.

The management master plan outlines an achievable process to design, construct and manage the St. Thomas Elevated Park. Additionally, the plan defines the concepts and costs for the park to guide its creative design. It also considers visitor impacts, programming and the potential of the park to contribute to branding St. Thomas as the Railway City and as a tool for community and economic revitalization.

Passive uses are those that can be done on a solo basis such as hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and also running, jogging and just quiet contemplation.

Active uses are those uses that involve groups using traditional venues such as sports fields and play structures as well as more extreme examples including zip lines and bungee jumping.

As an active trail segment in proximity to the Trans Canada Trail, the elevated park is an exciting attraction, with potential to generate significant visitor expenditures. Trail users can be expected to be overwhelmingly represented by hikers, cyclists and cross-country skiers.
