Parks, Trails and Trees In Markham

The Reality

Our parks, trails and trees add hugely to our quality of life.

The Challenge

We must enhance the parks and trails we have and add to the network. Parkland is essential to our new denser communities. We must strengthen our tree protection bylaws.

The Opportunity
  • Favour land for parks from developers, instead of money “in lieu”
  • Fill gaps between trails to create a connected network across the city
  • Pass stronger tree protection bylaws and licensing of all arborists operating in Markham
