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.
