Clarington Council has taken a decision to improve public access to the first portion of the Farewell Creek Trail.
The municipality is moving to upgrade access to the Farewell Creek Trail by installing a crushed stone surface to assist residents wanting to access the trail from Darlington Boulevard. This access point, which is the current construction road, is located through private property and will become a more formalized trail entry point in the future, said a statement.
Phase 2A of the Farewell Creek trail extension is nearing completion, and improved access will ensure that residents can use it safely, it added.
Meantime, the design work is underway for Phase 2B, the final phase of the trail, with anticipated construction scheduled for 2023 to 2024. Phase 2B of the trail will meander toward Townline Road along Farewell Creek, with a future potential connection to Oshawa’s path on Grandview Street at the Townline Road boundary, it said.
