In the last few years, a Railpath beside the CNR line has opened up, creating a wonderful path for walking, jogging or cycling, running from the West end of the neighbourhood all the way to the base of Sterling, with plans to extend it all the way to the waterfront in the future.
The West Toronto Railpath is a multi-use asphalt trail running from The Junction neighbourhood toward downtown Toronto. It, along with the Beltline Trail, is an example of an urban rails-to-trail project. Phase 1 of the path opened up in 2009. Phase 2, an extension south from Dundas Street West to Liberty Village is now under construction.
In total, the railpath is proposed to run about 4 km from Cariboo Avenue in The Junction to Strachan Avenue near the downtown core. Like other rail trail projects, the path runs along railway rights-of-way established many years ago that have been narrowed or abandoned.
High Park, the largest park in the city, is also close by with leafy hiking trails, picnic areas and even a small zoo.
