I am enamoured by railway parks after hearing of the high profile High Line in New York. I have walked the Parkland Walk in North London and the Promenade Planteé. I am pleased to see a tweet by Dave Meslin about the Railpath in my hometown of Toronto. I grew up just 2.5 km from the start of the Railpath at Dupont near Dundas. Looking forward to checking it out the next time I’m home for a visit.

There is also a disused tramline in Vancouver called the Arbutus Corridor – not yet a park, but it would be great to see this regenerated into a public space that can be enjoyed by the local community.
