Trail Development

Seasoned Planners of Urban and Recreational Trails


In the late 1970s, Kevin worked on the Capital City Recreation Trail for the City of Edmonton, which resolved the trail alignment and linkages required to connect the trail with the existing and planned urban fabric. In the late 90's Heartland Design conducted an inventory of 270 kilometers of trails under the auspices of the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance and was responsible for the detailed design of staging areas at Sharbot Lake, Madoc and Kaladar. Heartland worked with the Mohawks on the Bay of Quinte to design their “Heritage Trail” connecting the historic Mohawk landing in Shannonville to the Royal Chapel. Working with ‘The Friends of the Trail Inc., Heartland Design helped this group establish the 17 km abandoned rail bed corridor that  goes from Trenton to Glen Ross as a multi-use, non-motorized, year round, public recreational trail. Heartland was also instrumental in preparing the Gananoque Trails and Bikeway Feasiblity Study which delineated the recreational trail system throughout the town. Most recently, Heartland Design worked with the community of Batawa to prepare a comprehensive trail strategy to connect this vibrant community with the Lower Trent Trail and the river front.
