The Green Line

Creating a 5km linear park and trail in Toronto’s Dupont hydro corridor

As our city grows, we must look for creative opportunities to expand parks and connect communities. Park People is working on a special project to transform disconnected land in the Dupont hydro corridor into a beautiful, continuous park and trail, connecting multiple communities and becoming a citywide destination. The park will stretch 5km from Earlscourt Park to the Annex, linking communities which are currently low in green space with off-street routes for cycling and walking.

Park People, in partnership with Friends of the Green Line and Workshop Architecture, is building support with the City of Toronto, community, and other partners to realize the Green Line, through the following activities:

Z

Helping form Friends of The Green Line, with a new website and social media presence to share the project’s vision

Z

Creating a successful supporters campaign, reaching local residents, politicians, businesses, and organizations

Z

Animating spaces along the corridor with festivals, educational walks, and community arts projects

Z

Bringing communities, the City, and provincial agencies together to find solutions to move the project forward

A “brilliant proposal” whose “time has come”
