Improvements to Gateway Park, which stretches from Riverside Drive to University Avenue and then University Avenue to Wyandotte Street get underway today.

Gateway Park is a linear park beginning at 1271 Riverside Drive and runs nearly 1 kilometre south to Wyandotte Street, divided only by University Avenue. It is between 50 to 70 metres wide and bordered on each side by a thick overgrowth of diverse plants and trees. A row of Japanese cherry blossoms, donated in 2002 by the Consulate-General of Japan’s Sakura Project as a symbol of international friendship, lines a narrow foot trail in the centre of the park.

The work includes a fully-accessible asphalt recreational multi-use trail and access ramp, park signage, trailhead signage, wayfinding signage and Global Positioning System location signags, modern park benches, garbage and recycling containers and park lights .

The park will be closed during construction, and the full revitalization is expected to be completed by fall of 2022, which will mark the 20th anniversary of the Sakura Project.
