Area: south of Ellesmere, east of Scarborough Golf Club Road, west of Highland Creek, north of Lawrence


Welcome to Curran Hall!
Thank you to John Barrett, a long time Curran Hall resident for joining me at the unveiling of the new “Welcome to Curran Hall Community” community sign located on the southeast corner of Orton Park Road and Ellesmere Road. I have been receiving many positive remarks on the signs. (The other one is located at the northeast corner of Orton Park Road and Lawrence Ave East!).


Highland Creek Trail Project Donation  - Project Details
A grant of $200,000 has been received from Trans Canada Trail providing funds to assist in completing the Upper Highland Trail - Phase 1 Project.  Construction is proposed to start this Fall:

Phase 1
Three bridges (and the trail segments between connecting Botany Park to Morningside Park.  Installation of paving between the bridges and a rest node with seating and a view south of the Upper Highland watercourse.  The area south of phase 1, will have a walkable connection to Morningside Park.   

Phase 2
It is anticipated that additional funding (approximately equal to the grant, $200,000) towards the second phase will be forthcoming to connect the trail along Ellesmere to Military Trail and Orton Park Drive.  As this phase will align with the Meadoway Project there is a potential for cost sharing options as this project moves forward. The project is at 30% design where costs are estimated at approximately $750,000 – 1,000,000 for phase 2.

Phase 3
Toronto Water is working in the area of Upper Highland south of Ellesmere Road, and south of the Phase 1 project on sewer protection and watercourse work.  This will result in a change to the grading south of the third bridge.  As part of this Toronto Water work trail improvements are expected, and this will make the improved connection into the road system of Morningside Park. More details here.
