Grand River Access Point Improvement Project

Rendering of Proposed Site plan

The Heritage Grand River Access Point Improvement Project is part of a Regional Tourism Organization 4 (RTO4) multi-staged tourism product development initiative. It is designed to rejuvenate visitor and tourist use along the Grand River. The goal of the project is to develop a series of access points throughout the Watershed to a clearly defined standard. In Cambridge, this will see improvements to the canoe launch ramp located by the Cambridge to Paris Rail Trail (210 and 220 Water St. S), as well as a seating area with benches and additional parking.

Since 2020, City of Cambridge Staff have been working on this exciting collaboration with RTO4, the Region of Waterloo, and the Grand River Conservation Authority to enhance our existing Grand River access point on Water Street South and improve the area for public enjoyment while maintaining the integrity of the natural environment.
