The Meadoway is transforming a hydro corridor in Scarborough into a vibrant 16-kilometre stretch of urban greenspace and meadowlands that will become one of Canada’s largest linear urban parks.
Cyclists and pedestrians will soon be able to travel from the heart of downtown Toronto to Rouge National Urban Park without ever leaving nature.
Over the next seven years, this site will become a place filled with butterflies, birds and wildflowers – a rich meadow landscape realized on a scale never before seen in Toronto.
American Goldfinches, who are almost exclusively seed eaters and who are with us twelve months a year, are taking advantage of all of the seeds which are found in the Meadoway.
Both groups saw goldfinches today at Thomson Park which includes some of the Meadoway.
