2010 Richmond Trail Strategy

Linking People, the Community and Nature
The 2010 Richmond Trail Strategy was adopted by Council in Fall 2004. The overall vision is that:

West Dyke Trail May 2005"Richmond's trail system will be a vibrant network of interconnected trails, greenways, blueways and cycling routes that will support the City's commitment to creating a livable, attractive and healthy community.  It will provide a variety of exciting opportunities for walking and cycling that will link people to each other, to their community and to Richmond's unique natural and cultural heritage."

Over the years the concept of a trail system has expanded to include cycling routes, walkways, park pathways, expanded sidewalks and boulevards, greenways, blueways and rural roadways. The new proposed trail network is one that encompasses many different walking and cycling opportunities and works towards creating a walkable community in Richmond.
