WELCOME!


Welland is preparing a Community Trails Strategy to:


  • Enhance connectivity between trail networks, sidewalks and on-road cycling routes to create an integrated, connected system of trails and active transportation infrastructure.
  • Refine existing plans, particularly the City’s Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan, to develop an implementation strategy, project phasing and cost estimates for the proposed network.
  • Connect residents and visitors alike to Welland’s Trails and natural heritage to provide more opportunities for recreation, transportation and access to amenities.
  • Enhance Welland’s position as the Trails Centre of Niagara Region, bringing new tourism and economic development opportunities to the City.

It’s easy to keep involved and informed as the Strategy moves forward – simply click the "Sign Up" button on the right hand side of the screen to receive project updates. For additional information, be sure to Follow this page and the City’s social media feeds to stay connected. In the meantime, we encourage you to read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the Community Trails Strategy.


HAVE YOUR SAY!


The Community Trails Strategy will be developed based on your input. Information will be gathered through online tools, workshops, and more. We want to ensure that the plan reflects the needs, desires and values of the residents and stakeholders in the City. During the first round of engagement, which was open until March 29th, 2021, we gathered input about what elements of the Strategy are most important to the community, including the creation of a goals and vision statement and the identification of a draft Trails and Active Transportation Network.


The results of Survey #1 will be posted here soon, and we will provide additional details about our second online engagement when it opens!


Please provide your feedback using the tools below to help shape the foundations of the Strategy moving forward!
