Background

In 2006, the City of Kawartha Lakes developed and adopted its first Trails Master Plan, including a City-wide review, investigation and identification of trail opportunities. While the municipality was successful in implementing many of the 2006 recommendations, it's time for a full update to address the changes in the last 15 years and to look towards the future.

The intent of updating the plan is to:

  • Review the existing network and the previously proposed trails connections to determine which routes have been implemented, where improvements are needed and if there are any new opportunities for trail routes.
  • Review best and comparable practices from other municipalities and lessons learned from staff and stakeholders to update policies, processes and practices to support trail planning, design and development.
  • Develop a more detailed and informative implementation strategy and education/outreach tactics to support the roll-out of the plan and encourage increased active recreation and participation.

The full update is expected to be complete by Spring 2022.
