Cornwall Recreational Path GuideWith a comprehensive network of more than 40 kilometres of recreational paths, the City of Cornwall has released a new publication that will be of interest to people who walk, bike and rollerblade along the path.

The Recreational Path Guide offers useful information on topics related to the pathway, including courtesy on the path, e-bikes and bicycle safety. The Guide also includes a map of the Lamoureux Park section of the path and information on various points of interest in the area.

“The recreational path is one of our most popular amenities, and we all have a part to play in keeping the path safe and enjoyable for everyone,” said Christine Lefebvre, Division Manager of Parks & Recreation. “We hope the Guide will provide residents with a greater understanding of the rules and etiquette for the path.”

The largest part of the recreational path spans the entire waterfront, offering great views of the St. Lawrence River. This part of the recreational path is also part of the Waterfront Trail, which stretches from Niagara-on-the-Lake to the Quebec border.

Published by the Seaway News, the 16-page booklet is supported by a number of advertisers including Bicycle World, the NAV CENTRE, Memory Lane Sweets, Ontario Power Generation, Au Vieux Duluth, Stacy’s Pet Depot, Cornwall and the Counties Tourism and Kalrim Cycles & Sports.

“We’re pleased to have been able to work with the City of Cornwall in creating this special publication,” said Rick Shaver, Publisher of Seaway News. “A total of 22,000 copies of the Guide have been printed and they will be distributed throughout the City.”

The Guide will be delivered to residential properties in the City this week and copies will also be available at various City facilities such as the Benson Centre, Aquatic Centre, Cornwall Civic Complex and City Hall. Copies of the Guide will also be available at a variety of City businesses.

You can request a copy of the Guide via the Information Request form on this website.
