Join us for a family fun celebration on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the start of the newest Millennial Recreational Trail section, located beside 7170 McLeod Road in Niagara Falls.

Combined, all sections of the trail travel roughly 7.5 km and enable residents to walk, run, and bike from the south end of the city to the north end.
The event ceremony will also mark the renaming of the 6th section in honour of the late Dr. Henry G. Acres, who was a hydroelectric engineering pioneer whose impact in Niagara Falls began in 1905, with the installation of the first two turbines at the Rankin Power Station.
A dedication ceremony will begin at 11:15 am with Mayor Diodati bringing greetings on behalf of City Council, followed by other various speaker and then a ceremonial ribbon cutting.

Each video will include historical background, available amenities and trail etiquette information.
The Park in the City Committee is an appointed volunteer committee of City Council.

RZone Policy and Incident Reports

Multi-use Trails Etiquette
Trails (or paths) for non-motorized use have become very popular resulting in congested and potentially hazardous situations. Regardless of whether you are bicycling, walking, jogging, or skating, if you follow the same set of rules as everyone else, your trip will be safer and more enjoyable. The City of Niagara Falls has various trails and we hope to add more in the future. It is important that residents and visitors feel safe along our trails. You can help make the trails safe for everyone by using the following guidelines:
All trail users, including bicyclists, joggers, walkers, wheelchairs, skateboarders, roller bladers and in-line skaters, should be respectful of other users regardless of their mode, speed or level of skill.
Travel in a consistent and predictable manner. Always look behind before changing positions on the trail.
Don't Block The Trail
When in a group or with your pets, use no more than half the trail so as not to block the flow of other users.
Stay as near to the right side of the trail as is safe, except when passing another user.
Pass On The Left
Pass others, going your direction, on their left. Yield to slower and on-coming traffic. Use hand signals to alert those behind you of your moves. Look ahead and back to make sure the lane is clear before you pull out and pass. Pass with ample separation and do not move back to the right until safely past. Remember: Kids and pets can be unpredictable.
When stopping, move off of the trail. Beware of others approaching you from behind and make sure they know you are pulling over.
Give Audible Warning Before Passing
Give a clear signal by using voice, bell or horn before passing. Give the person you are passing time to respond. Watch for their reaction. So that you can hear these signals.
Obey All Traffic Signs And Signals
Use extra caution where trails cross streets. Stop at all signs and intersections and be cautious when crossing driveways. When entering or crossing a trail yield to traffic on the trail.
No Motorized Vehicles Allowed
Do not access any trail with a motorized vehicle. This includes riding an e-bike while propelled by the motor.
Poop And Scoop - Dog On Leash
Respect the trail and others using the trail. Please pick-up after your pet. A reminder that all dogs must carry a valid dog license and must be kept on leash at all times.
Use Lights At Night
Be equipped with lights when using a trail at any time from dusk to dawn. Bicyclists should have a white light visible from five- hundred feet to the front and a red or amber light visible from five-hundred feet to the rear. Other trail users should have white lights visible from two-hundred fifty feet to the front, and a red or amber light visible from two-hundred fifty feet to the rear.
Don't Use A Trail Under The Influence Of Alcohol Or Drugs....and No Smoking
Don't overestimate the safety of any trail. You may need all of your reflexes quickly -- don't have them impaired. People cannot smoke on our trails or other City parks, walkways or facility properties.
Be Respectful Of Private Property
Trails are open to the public, but often the land on the side of the trail is private property. Please respect all property rights.
Clean Up Litter
Do not leave glass, paper, cans, plastic, or any other debris on or near a trail. If you drop something, please remove it immediately.
Have You Outgrown Trails?
Trails have engineering and design limits. If your speed or style endangers other users, check for alternative routes better suited to your needs. Selecting the right location is safer and more enjoyable for all concerned.
