Toronto to Algonquin Greenway (TAG) envisions a corridor of revitalized communities stretching from Toronto to Algonquin Park. Visitors and residents will be inspired to hike, bike and paddle Ontario’s scenery, heritage and hospitality. Towns, villages and hamlets will reap benefits by embracing a new market of Greenway travellers.
A new crop of bike-friendly campgrounds will welcome TAG travellers at appropriate intervals. B&B’s will cater to Greenway tourists with gourmet food and memorable experiences. Visitors will be able to access a range of tour, shuttle, and luggage transfer services.
We imagine a day when the TAG name, concept and logo is recognized and celebrated worldwide. We can hear the buzz beginning to build. Here are some milestones…
> July 2015: TAG participates in the international celebration of the Pan Am/Para Pan Am Games through its incorporation of the Pan Am Path in Toronto, and its proximity to the whitewater venue in Minden.
> Canada Day, July 1, 2017: TAG proudly takes part in the celebrating the Grand Opening of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) from sea to sea to sea, through its two notable segments of the TCT – the Toronto Pan Am Path, and the section from Uxbridge to Peterborough.
> 2020 or sooner: TAG celebrates the Canadian Canoe Museum’s move to the Parks Canada Lift Lock site where it will be able to connect Peterborough’s water and land trails with Canada’s canoe heritage.
Dozens of businesses and communities will have come to benefit from the Greenway and cannot imagine ever having been without it. TAG will inspire new social enterprises that provide profit and contribute to community needs, while conserving and enhancing natural and cultural heritage.
It will take a grand effort by individuals and agencies from Toronto to the Park to bring this vision to reality. Let’s collaborate on this vision. Contact us to find out how you can become a part of this.
