Following the shore of Lake Ontario, this busy pathway is used for both recreation and for non-motorized commuting. Amenities such as washrooms, benches, and picnic areas are available in the four municipal parks through which the Waterfront Trail passes, as is TTC access.
On June 22, 2006, a coalition of community partners, including municipal governments and the Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA) released a report card on the health of the Etobicoke Creek and Mimico Creek watersheds. The state of these watersheds is an important measure of environmental health in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). As a result of years of urbanization, they have become one of the most highly developed and degraded watersheds in the region.
Currently, 9% of the watershed areas are publicly accessible greenspace. Significant progress has been made in developing a network of trails in the watersheds, with two thirds of the desired trail network now in place. Once complete, the public will have access to 192 kilometres of trails in the Etobicoke Creek watershed and 101 kilometres of trails in the Mimico Creek watershed. Additional walking routes are available in Humber Bay Park, Colonel Samuel Smith Park, and Marie Curtis Parks.
