Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Filsinger Park Stream naturalization
#1
I was riding the trail that runs up to Monarch woods and when I went under the subway at Westmount I was greeted by the stream being completely reworked and the old concrete sidewalk has been removed.

Looks like the whole stream is being reworked to a more natural state. Hopefully they improve the rest of the trail through here and especially the subway itself, it's pretty run down with only half the lights worked. I am not sure if the stretch between Westmount and the Iron Horse trail will be given the same treatment or not, there isn't as much room along there.

There's a huge pile of rubble and rebar from all the concrete lining the stream. This is a the junction of the two streams where there's a bridge.

   
I suppose this is the final look they're going for with this... there were a few crows poking around already. Riding the trail up past the supercenter and into the residential area is quite nice with the more natural part of the stream. Some parts of the trail are paved and others aren't, it would be nice to see more improvements made along this stretch, it would be easy to commute in the summer to downtown by bike.

Google maps link if you're not familiar with the exact area.
