Construction at Crane Park starts Aug. 3 to continue the revitalization of trails and natural spaces. The Crane Park Revitalization Project is a part of our larger strategy to improve connectivity of existing trails outlined in the Guelph Trail Master Plan. Construction is expected to end by Sept. 3, weather permitting.

Expected closures:

Trail closed between Dovercliffe Road and College Avenue West

Between Aug. 3-Sept. 3, the trail will be completely closed north of the pedestrian stairway at Dovercliffe Road to the northern-most trail head at Dovercliffe Road.

Closures to the remaining trail weekdays from 7 a.m.-3 p.m.

The connecting trail from Dovercliffe Road to the Speed River will be closed weekdays from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. and will remain open on weekends.

The main trail from the parking lot at College Avenue West to the Speed River will have intermittent closures on weekdays from 7 a.m.-3 p.m., but remains open on weekends.

Please stay out of marked work areas until construction is complete.
