Bartley Smith Greenway Trail

The Bartley Smith Greenway is a l5 kilometre work-in progress following the course of the West Don River. The trail commences at Steeles Ave. near Dufferin St., northward through Marita Payne Park, continuing north to Langstaff Rd. where the southern trail ends. The trail recommences north of McNaughton Rd. and continues to Teston Rd. (Maple). Enjoy a unique Canadian valleyland vision, the Langstaff EcoPark.

The valley has been transformed with new marshlands, the largest constructed deciduous swamp in Ontario, and thousands of new trees and shrubs, all of which have resulted in an explosion of wildlife. Birds, beavers, coyotes, foxes, birds, snakes, turtles and frogs, top the list of wildlife seen while walking, hiking or biking. A stop at beautiful Keffer Marsh is highly recommended.
