The Chrysler Canada Greenway nearly 50 kilometre multi use trail that is the southern-most section of the Trans Canada Trail. It connects natural areas, rich agricultural lands, historically and architecturally significant structures, award winning wineries and many other features that make the Essex Region unique. The Greenway effectively joins 25 otherwise separate natural areas and three watersheds. It significantly improves the quality of life in the Essex Region by connecting people to nature and culture in a way that is accessible to all.

In 1995, with a significant donation from Chrysler Canada, the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA) purchased the 42 km abandoned railway to preserve this significant corridor. An 18 month public planning process determined that the property would best benefit the community as a multi-use recreational trail, underground utility corridor and a natural green space.

The corridor begins south of Oldcastle, and continues south through the Towns of McGregor and Harrow, and proceeds through Kingsville to Ruthven at Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens. In the past several years, additional extensions have been added.

There are five community entrances where you can park your car:

The Caesars Windsor Community Entrance offers parking and seasonal portable washroom facilities.

Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens Community Entrance, 1550 Road 3 E, Kingsville, ON N9Y 2E5, provides parking and washroom facilities
