In 2017, GDA secured a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to develop a trail plan for the Goodwood Tract. The Goodwood track lies at a key geographical junction point linking continuous trails from the shores of Lake Ontario through the Rouge National Urban Park (RNUP), north up to Goodwood, east and west along the Oak Ridges trail and multiple other trails of the East Duffins Headwaters south of Uxbridge.

Since the approval of the Duffins Creek Headwaters Management Plan in 2003, the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority’s (TRCA) Goodwood Resource Management Tract  (Goodwood RMT) has been identified as a key property of  regional trail significance. Over the years, site specific decisions have resulted in the loss of natural cover linking different regions of the moraine.  The Goodwood tract has avoided some of these decisions and provides protection and links to isolated natural areas.

We partnered with TRCA, Parks Canada, the Township of Uxbridge, the Oak Ridges Trails Association and with local landowners to develop this plan.
