Trail etiquette

The trails are for everyone's enjoyment, so please be safe and courteous around others. It is standard practice when passing on a bike, rollerblades, or skateboard to make others aware of your presence. Use a bell on your bicycle or call "on your left" to announce that you are giving another trail user.

Fast-moving persons

Cyclists and similar fast-moving persons must:

  • Yield to pedestrians
  • Please keep to the right, pass on the left when it is safe to do so
  • Let pedestrians know you are approaching with a friendly greeting or by ringing your bell

When enjoying our parks and trails, do not forget to clean up after your pet. Please Stoop and Scoop and remember to keep your pet on a leash at all times. Please refer to the Animal Control By-law for more information.
