The Scarborough Bluffs are an iconic natural wonder located at the doorstep of Canada’s largest city. They offer natural greenspaces and support habitats for a wide variety of wildlife.

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), in partnership with the City of Toronto, launched the Scarborough Waterfront Project with a vision of creating a system of public greenspaces along the Lake Ontario shoreline between Bluffer’s Park and East Point Park.

This system will respect and protect the significant natural and cultural features of the Bluffs, enhance terrestrial and aquatic habitat, and provide a safe and enjoyable waterfront experience.

Project Status Update

Brimley Road South Multi-Use Trail Project

As detailed design of the Project has progressed, and at the request of members of the community, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) and City of Toronto project team are exploring the possibility of providing accommodation for existing access points for properties backing onto Brimley Road, south of Barkdene Hills.

The next step for the project team is to conduct technical site investigations of the impacted properties to inform the ongoing design development. At the next design milestone, the team will provide further updates.

West Segment Shoreline and Multi-Use Trail Project

This component of the Scarborough Waterfront Project, which includes the shoreline between the east end of Bluffer’s Park to Meadowcliffe, is currently at the 60% design stage. It is anticipated that an upcoming public engagement phase will be launched in Spring 2023 to provide an opportunity for public comment on the proposed landscape design and future programming options.

This portion of the SWP will include:

  • An expanded headland off both Bluffer’s Park and Meadowcliffe
  • A significantly larger sand beach
  • A paved, separated 5.4m wide recreational multi-use trail to accommodate both pedestrian and cyclist usage along the beach, along with a 4.0m wide pedestrian trail along the new Bluffer’s Park headland
  • Enhanced aquatic and terrestrial habitat
