What's Up

There are many issues, large and small, that pop up from time to time but don’t necessarily fit into any of the other pages.  So, to help keep people up to date, we have this “What’s Up” page.

The newly expanded Miles Road End Parkette has re-opened! There is still work to be done: replacement of the park bench, etc., but the parkette is now fully accessible, with all of the construction fencing removed. The construction started this spring, but this reclamation of privatized public space has been years in the making. It’s great to see it finally come to fruition!

Here are some views this morning (November 24).

Shoreline Rehabilitation at Colonel Samuel Smith Park to Start in March 2024

The TRCA will be starting a shoreline rehabilitation project at Colonel Samuel Smith Park in March of next year. The first phase of this project will address the outer shore at and around Whimbrel Point, which has been seriously eroded by a series of severe storms over the past few years.

You can find more information on the TRCA’s project website.


There is a new development proposal in Long Branch which has generated a lot of pubic concern. It would replace the existing 7 story apartments beside Long Branch Park with towers reaching 30 stories. There are many problems and concerns with this proposal, but most of them aren’t directly CCFEW concerns. Our concerns are mainly around stormwater management and the additional pressure on the adjacent Long Branch Park and Len Ford Park.

You can find out more about the process on Councillor Morley’s website.

All of the planning documents are on the City’s Application Information Centre

Work will begin this month to enhance and expand the Miles Road Parkette! The work will begin with shoreline rehabilitation and the final result will be a substantially enlarged waterfront parkette. CCFEW joined local residents several years ago to contest a major encroachment by one of the neighbouring property owners. The result is that public access will be restored to a significant portion of waterfront.

You can find more information on the TRCA’s project website.

The fences are down and we can pass under the QEW on the Etobicoke Creek again! Completion of the formal trail won’t happen until later this year at the earliest, but the path under the bridge is better now than it was before construction started. The trail from the QEW up to Sherway Drive was completed over four years ago and now we can use it again!

A view from the north side of the QEW. The path is muddy and icy now, but it is wide, fairly level, and OPEN. Even this is an improvement from the pre-construction conditions.
