Connecting CWATS

Through CWATS, our region is making active connections. In 2018, approximately 10 km between Kingsville and Leamington will be complete. Pedestirans & Cyclists can travel along County Road 20 using CWATS bikeways and pathways. Users can travel from Kratz Side Road to Dimenna Dr. in Kingsville using the paved shoulders and from Dimenna Dr. to Sherk St. in Leamington using the 1 way cycle track. This connection is a major accomplishment for Essex County as it takes us one step close connecting our seven local municipalities through active transportation.

CR 20 One Way Cycle Track in Kingsville and Leamington

The County, with their partners, has also made significant advancements toward other targets and policies of the CWATS master plan. New facilities are being built each year creating countless opportunities to explore Essex County. We are now starting to see more people on the paths. Inspire others by sharing your trail travels on our CWATS Facebook page.
