Chain of Parks trail plans

Background:

The “Chain of Parks” is a project to, over time, turn some historic landfills areas into a series of linked parks that offer a wide range of recreational facilities and open space. The land earmarked for the Chain of Parks is located within Kingston’s Green Wedge.

The reality of bringing the Chain of Parks idea to life is complex, with many different public and private agencies involved, as well as significant funding needed from all levels of government.

Kingston Council supports the Chain of Parks concept. As part of a wider vision for the area, Council developed a Green Wedge Plan in 2012 and appointed a project officer in 2013 to co-ordinate the interests of Council and work with other agencies to ensure a focus is placed on the Green Wedge Plan.

Council continues to work on initiatives in the area such as planning for new walking and cycling paths (trails) and a study to look into the need for equestrian facilities.
