A more connected Scarborough means one where people have safe, reliable, and healthy physical connections to their community. Using existing infrastructure, the West Scarborough Rail path would stretch from Taylor Massey Creek in the southwest all the way to the Meadoway in the northeast.
Taking as an example the West Toronto Rail Path, the West Scarborough Rail Path would provide important transit connections to Victoria Park, Warden, and Kennedy TTC stations, meaning people could walk or ride bikes and have more options at their disposal to get to school or work and keep our community thriving.
Our vision sees the West Scarborough Rail Path as not only a physical connection, but as a meeting place, a community art space, public recreation lands, and a key piece in the fight for the future of Scarborough.
Sign the petition to help make the West Scarborough Rail Path a reality, and stay in touch with the Scarborough Junction Community for other initiatives!
