The Kay Gardner Beltline is a
natural sanctuary and fascinating historic corridor within the heart of our
Midtown Neighbourhoods. The Beltline ‘Lost Stations’ Project is a way to
highlight the trail’s railway history and the communities it runs through, and
to enhance and bring a sense of place to the trail for future generations.
Using three ‘lost stations’ between Eglinton and Mount Pleasant as focal point,
a design concept is being created to celebrate the historical, cultural and
botanical features of the Beltline.
A preliminary design consultation meeting was held with Parks, Forestry and Recreation Staff and Victor Ford Consultants on February 25. Community members were invited to review three proposed design concepts for the ‘stations’ and provide their feedback. Both the form provided at the meeting and more detailed information on the designs can be found below. Parks staff are accepting feedback on the preliminary designs until March 11.
Feedback can be sent to:

A second round of designs will
be available for review by late spring of this year, and construction will take
place this fall or next spring.
