“The Fort York Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge will not only link communities together, but will also connect us to our past”
Spanning 300 metres across two rail corridors, the Fort York Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge will become a critical north-south ‘green’ link, connecting the Niagara and Liberty Village neighbourhoods with Fort York and the waterfront.
It will also provide a vital link to Toronto’s past. Evoking the serpentine path of Garrison Creek, which once flowed through the site, the landmark structure will provide a reminder of the significant role natural history played in the history of Canada. As the site of the famous War of 1812; in which the British Army repelled the invading Americans and paved the way for the establishment of Canada as a country, Fort York is a highly valued part of our nation’s history. Currently it is all but inaccessible, cut off from the city by highways, rail corridors and development. Once completed, the Fort York Pedestrian and Cycle Bridge will not only link communities together, but will also connect us with this important resource, while providing excellent vantage points from which to see how our city has grown from its origins at the mouth of Garrison Creek. This project was designed in association with Aecom.
