Walk Where Trains Used to Run

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.

Parkland Walk in London, December 2010 and Promenade Plantée in Paris, January 2011:

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.
