Gaetz Brook Greenway
Planned and developed by the SATA Trails Society with financial support from HRM and other funders, the Gaetz Brook Greenway will extend 7 kms along the abandoned rail corridor from the East Chezzetcook Road to the intersection of Highway 107 and Trunk 7 in Musquodoboit Harbour. From that location, a separate project will continue the facility another 3.5km where it is intended to join with the Musquodoboit Trailway.
The Gaetz Brook Greenway provides a safe alternative to the busy Trunk 7 for walking and cycling for the East Chezzetcook, the Porter’s Lake, and Musquodoboit Harbour communities.
The hub location of Gaetz Brook Greenway will facilitate connections to Gaetzbrook Junior High School, church, garden clubs, The Lions Club, Canadian Legion, as well as the nearby Business Park (e.g. a bike repair shop, local coffee shops, stores etc. ).
The first phase of the project, bridges remediation, is complete as of fall 2018. The next phase, targeted for 2019, is clearing, drainage, subgrade and finished surface work. The third phase to be done in 2020 is amenities.
