Collingwood Bike Month: Millennium Trail Opening

Project Description


What better way to celebrate and promote healthy living and culture then open a new scenic trail along the waterfront, with uniquely designed Public Art bike racks  and new water bottle refill station to quench your thirst while out for a peddle or walk.

On Wednesday June 28th, the official opening bike ride will begin with the hydration station at Sunset Point at 3:30 p.m. and then proceeding to the Heritage Trail for 4:00 p.m.

Heritage Drive Trail stretching out to Millennium Park and outdoor water bottle refill station at Sunset Point are two new features along Collingwood’s waterfront. Now you can hydrate and enjoy a continuous, safe journey along the waterfront trail system.

The water-bottle refill station is connected to a Public Art bench installation that celebrates water and the importance of protecting this valuable resource. The station and bench were funded by the Healthy Kids Community Challenge project serving as another great effort to promote community health and wellness in Collingwood.

Heritage Drive Trail is a continuation of the commemorative sidewalk along the Eastern side of the Harbour Spit. It features five Public Art bicycle racks along the trail and has successfully separated cycle and pedestrian traffic from automobiles as you travel to Millennium Park. This project was co-funded by the Town of Collingwood, the County of Simcoe, and the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program (MTO).
