A Greenway Reconnecting Communities

Enhancing Parks, Open Spaces, and Active Transportation Around the Allen Road Expressway

Caroline Bucksbaum is a student in the Master of Planning and Urban Development program at Ryerson University. This project was completed for the City of Toronto, City Planning Division, Community Planning – North York during her summer internship. The purpose was to create a map and photo inventory of segments of missing active transportation path along the Allen Greenway, an open space system on both sides of a below, at, and above grade expressway in northwest Toronto. She created a comprehensive Guidebook and resource for planners, urban designers, landscape architects, engineers, and the public; anyone interested in or working on the Allen Greenway initiative. This Guidebook provides the background needed to proceed with conceptual designs, either for individual stretches of path or as a greenway or urban trail master plan.
