Lakeview Boulevard Reconstruction and Off-Road Cycling Trail

Consultation has concluded

Project Background

In 2017, The Town of Ajax completed a Class Environmental Assessment study to review and recommend road improvements related to Lakeview Boulevard. The study focused on evaluating a range of options for the road and nearby parking of the mid-section of Lakeview Boulevard - Paradise Park to ensure that the best options were implemented. The detailed design was completed in 2018 and construction is now almost complete.

Currently, the Town of Ajax is designing the road reconstruction of the remaining end sections of Lakeview Boulevard, between Pickering Beach Road and Poplar Avenue and between Maple Avenue and Shoal Point Road, and the extension of the off-road cycling trail to the limits of the project area.

The Town of Ajax would like to receive public input for the design of Lakeview Boulevard reconstruction and the extension of the off-road cycling trail.

  • Will there be a new parking lot created at the bottom of Pickering Beach Road, and will there be curbs created along Lakeview Blvd. to help prevent parking along the street?

    Dwayne Higgins asked 4 months ago

    Thank you for contacting the Town and providing your comment. There is no parking planned at the bottom of Pickering Beach Road, and, at this time street parking is still under review. As per the preliminary design, there is a section of Lakeview Blvd, just east of Pickering Beach Road South, that will have a curb. This section of the road is marked on the project’s plans as “Road Reconstruction Urban Section”. To download the plans, and see this section of the road, click on the Lakeview Blvd – PIC Boards July 08, 2019 document in the Document Library window. 

  • Why have you not replaced the old garbage bins or better still increased the number of bins along the trail? There are none in any of the parking lots at all. With the increase in usage of the lakeshore that this project will bring about, we should be providing more garbage cans and have signage encouraging people to dispose of their litter responsibly or take it home for recycling. At a time when water pollution, by plastic waste and other garbage, is receiving worldwide attention, instead of encouraging the responsible disposal of waste, Ajax will be actively contributing to the amount of garbage that will find its way into our lakes and oceans. There should also be specialized bins for the collection of cigarette ends, as they are a major contributor to water pollution/contamination of the lake and oceans leading to ingestion by aquatic species. Ajax should participate in the TerraCycle program to collect and recycle cigarette ends. Lastly, the town should investigate and implement a program for separate collection and recycling of dog waste, instead of mixing it in with general garbage. Dog owners are generally a responsible group and could be counted on to use a few strategically placed dedicated bins. This could contribute to the composting program and keep all of the waste and plastic bags out of the landfill. An excellent program exists in Whitby , which could be used as a blueprint.

    Thank you for contacting the Town and providing your comments.  Garbage bins, recycle of cigarette ends and dog waste are out of scope for this project. Your comments have been submitted to Town of Ajax’ Operations Centre.  For all future trail garbage bin related matters, please contact Ajax Operations at 905-683-2951 oroperations@ajax.ca.   

    We encourage you to attend the Public Open House on July 8, 2019,  and ask questions and discuss the project.


  • Why is the trail being referred to here as a cycling trail when it is clearly a mixed-use trail? Is there a plan to separate pedestrians and dog walkers from cyclists?

    jan cook asked 5 months ago

    The proposed off-road trail would provide connectivity from the terminus of the newly constructed cycle trail at Paradise Park to the existing Waterfront Trail at Pickering Beach Road and at Shoal Point Road.  The new sections of the off-road cycling trails would be located between Lakeview Boulevard and existing Waterfront Trail.  

    We encourage you to attend the Public Open House on July 8, 2019,  to see the preliminary alignments of the new off-road cycling trails, ask questions, and discuss the project.

  • I would like to strongly suggest that when the parking lots are "winterised" this year that the central parking lot is closed and that the most Westerly parking lot is cleared and kept open, as there is a short easily maintainable pathway from both ends of this lot to the main walking trail. This past winter the only footpath to the "maintained area" in the East lot was not cleared at all - there was no walking access to the parking area except from the road. While negotiating the ice-covered footpath from the maintained area to the trail, my husband "wiped-out" twice in a matter of a few feet. Luckily he did not injure himself; if he had I would have sued Ajax for damages!

    Thank you for contacting the Town and providing your comments.  The central parking lot is out of scope of work for this project.  Your comments have been submitted to Town of Ajax’ Operations Centre.  For all future parking, winter maintenace, related matters, please contact Ajax Operations at 905-683-2951 oroperations@ajax.ca.
