On the Culham Trail near Credit Valley Conservation’s administration office in Mississauga, delegates announced a $100,000 grant from the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation to support development of a master plan to develop a continuous 110-kilometre trail along the Credit River.
With the Foundation’s grant, CVC, partnering with the Credit Valley Heritage Society, will bring to life a 60-year old vision of a connected pedestrian corridor. Stretching from the river’s headwaters in the Greenbelt outside of Orangeville, through the urban river valleys of Peel, the trail will end at the mouth of the river in Lake Ontario, not far from Port Credit.
