Revamped Iroquois pathway beckons this winter and all year long

A typical scene a pedestrian might see while walking the Iroquois pathway, while looking south toward the locks in that community.

IROQUOIS — South Dundas is touting its newly rehabilitated pathway on the Iroquois waterfront.

The path was rebuilt and repaved last fall thanks to a $150,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.

And it’s cleared of snow in the winter like its counterpart on the Morrisburg waterfront, enabling residents of both communities to enjoy their pathways along the St. Lawrence year-round.

“This is a great project, it not only adds to the beautification of the area, it  increases accessibility for enjoying our surroundings and outdoor activities,” said local MPP Jim McDonell of the Iroquois improvements.

“I encourage everyone to safely enjoy the pathway all year round. The municipality is grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their support as we work to provide our residents with accessible opportunities for active  living,” said Mayor Steven Byvelds.

The municipality assures the public that both pathways will continue to be cleared throughout the winter, providing “more options for living a healthy and  active lifestyle.”

“South Dundas is committed to improving the lives of residents and visitors alike and working to make South Dundas a more accessible place,” asserts the municipality in a press release.

An agency of the Ontario government, the OTF awarded more than  $115 million to 644 projects last year to build healthy and vibrant communities in the province.
