The Town of East Gwillimbury (EG) is undertaking a study to update the 2012 Active Transportation and Trails Master Plan (ATTMP) to expand our active transportation and trails system and encourage more residents to walk and cycle in the community. There are currently over 37 kms of trails and active transportation routes to explore in EG!

The Community Parks, Recreation and Culture Department has coordinated a public consultation process for you to comment on an update to the network part of the ATTMP. Comments can be added directly to the existing and previously proposed Active Transportation Network maps.

What is active transportation?

Active transportation is defined as a human-powered form of travelling using muscle power.

Examples include:

  • Walking
  • Running
  • Cycling
  • Rollerblading
  • Skateboarding

We can use these active modes of transportation in our everyday lives. From our commute to and from work and trips during work hours to destination-oriented trips like running errands and visiting friends. We can also reap the benefits from active commuting through active recreation (e.g., hiking and cycling).

This study focuses on non-motorized travel modes on EG's roads, parks, etc. and will help us:

  • Identify essential projects over the next 25 years.
  • Determine a strategy for maintenance.
  • Review the current standards, by-laws, and programs for trails, cycling and walking.

The plan will also support policies and programs to promote walking and cycling in the areas of education and safety.
