As part of our Trails Master Plan, The Town of Innisfil is committed to creating a cohesive trail network to provide alternative travel connections. The plan identified a need for a secondary trail on Jack Crescent. This trail provides:

  • A safe active route for students traveling to and from Goodfellow Public School
  • Less road traffic around Goodfellow Public School during pickup for drop off times
  • Environmental benefits to the surrounding community
  • More options for physical activity in the community

Trail design

The Jack Crescent Trail consists of a three metre-wide trail portion near Goodfellow Public School and a pedestrian bridge just east of the existing stormwater management pond across the wetland area. Construction began in August 2021, and it will be maintained during the winter months.

Environmental Assessment

We conducted a Schedule ‘A' Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) study to develop a multi-use trail connecting Jack Crescent with Goodfellow Public School. A Schedule ‘A' Class EA is required for any new construction of or removal of sidewalks or paths including water crossings.

Agency collaboration

We collaborated with several external agencies to plan and construct the Jack Crescent Trail, including:

  • Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB)
  • Simcoe County
  • Lake Simcoe Regional Conservation Authority (LSRCA)
  • Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF)
