The first steps to relocate the Oldcastle entrance to the Chrysler Canada Greenway have begun, with the end goal to create a trail hub that connects the Greenway to the Town of Tecumseh and Laurier Parkway trails.

“As well, it is expected to connect to the new trails that will become part of the Rt. Honourable Herb Gray Parkway system,” said Richard Wyma, General Manager of the Essex Region Conservation Authority.

An exact location for this trail hub will likely be announced in the fall.

“As part of the Highway 3 expansion, it became necessary to relocate this existing entrance to the Greenway,” Wyma went on to say. “It became evident that this could evolve into an extraordinary opportunity to connect all of these outstanding trails, bring our vision of a region connected by trails one step closer to reality.” Removal of the parking facilities is the first step, and the relocation of the Trans Canada Trail Pavilion will follow.

In the meantime, trail users can park at the Caesar’s Windsor Community Entrance located on County Road 8 just east of Walker Road, or at the Ciociaro Club of Windsor and use the pedestrian crossing at Walker Road and Highway 3 to cross the busy intersection.
