'Get a move' on Wellington!

There are a lot of ways to get around Wellington County and keep active: walking, jogging, running, cycling, in-line skating, skateboarding, non-mechanized wheelchairing, snowshoeing, and skiing to name a few.  We are working on a plan to support these types of 'active transportation' in our municipality and across Wellington County so you can walk, run, or bike to the local grocery store, school or work!

Background

The Wellington County Active Transportation Plan Steering Committee has developed a county-wide active transportation plan  on behalf of the County and all local municipalities.  The County of Wellington Active Transportation Master Plan is a long-term strategy to create a pedestrian and cycling supportive environment.  The plan includes maps which illustrate spine routes and major loops, on-road and off-road facilities types, and a three phased network implementation plan.  An equally important part of the plan is the promotion of active transportation, including education and encouragement initiatives.
