Nashville Conservation Reserve Vaughan, ON Get Directions


Nashville Conservation Reserve (NCR) is a 900-plus hectare Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) property located in York Region.

The property supports a variety of wildlife, provides significant deer wintering yards, and is an important migratory corridor. Its large size and current and future ecological value make NCR an integral part of our region’s natural heritage system.

Kirby Road Multi-use Trail Project

The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), in partnership with the Regional Municipality of York and the City of Vaughan, is constructing the Kirby Road Multi-use Trail within TRCA’s Nashville Conservation Reserve (NCR) property. Scope of work activities for Phase 2 includes building 705-metres of granular trail, including a 375-metre switchback – touted as one of the largest in TRCA’s area of jurisdiction. Development of the Kirby Road Multi-use Trail is a key recommendation of the NCR Management Plan (2015). The Management Plan was developed in collaboration with members of the public and was subsequently endorsed by the City of Vaughan and the Region of York. Once complete, the trail will provide improved access to NCR and become a key component of both the City of Vaughan’s and the Region of York’s pedestrian and cycling network. Phase 2 construction activities are ongoing and are anticipated to be completed late-summer 2021.
