Ongoing construction and improvements taking place through spring and summer 2021 will close the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail in Whitby between South Blair Street and Boundary Road (Intrepid Park).

Improvements include:

  • installation of new benches, drainage ducts and wood guard rails;
  • construction of additional rest areas; and
  • planting new trees.
