This new wheelchair accessible trail in Coniston connects residents and two schools (St. Paul the Apostle and Notre Dame de la Merci) via the end of Rideau Road to Edward Ave, and serves as a portion of the Trans Canada Trail. Dog walkers, students and families are frequent users of this non-motorized trail. It provides access to the natural landscape and completes a 2.5km walking loops along Rideau Ave, Caruso St and Edward Ave.
The community wishes to name this trail "Sentier Jean Tellier Trail" pending City Council's approval through the official naming process. Jean Tellier, a resident of Coniston and retired teacher was the driving force to see Coniston become a part of the Trans Canada Trail.
This project was made possible in partnership with Rainbow Routes Association, Employment Ontario, Trans Canada Trail, Xstrata Nickel, the City of Greater Sudbury, the Coniston Community Action Network and local resident Jean Tellier.
