7th Avenue Greenway
The District of Mission has launched the design process for the 7th Avenue Greenway, a 6.5 km route for people walking, wheeling and cycling. The future greenway will support all forms of active transportation and recreation, including walking, cycling, skateboarding, rollerblading, and people using strollers or other mobility aids.
The 7th Avenue Greenway is being developed as part of the District’s commitment to providing convenient and safe mobility options and making it easier for people of all ages and abilities to walk, wheel or cycle.
The greenway is an extension of the existing East Mission Heritage Greenway and will provide a continuous connection Wren Street in the west to Dewdney Trunk Road in the east. The greenway includes three segments, with the design process focusing on the east and west segments.
- West Segment: 7th Avenue between Wren Street and Fraser River Heritage Park
- Existing Segment: Existing pathways within Fraser River Heritage Park (no changes planned)
- East Segment: Residential streets between Fraser River Heritage Park and Dewdney Trunk Road
We want to hear from the Mission community as we develop design options for the 7th Avenue Greenway. Throughout the design process, we will keep you informed, listen to community aspirations and concerns, and report back on how community input was used to influence the design options. Let’s work together to create a greenway that is safe, comfortable, and accessible for people of all ages and abilities!
