Markham has over 22 kms of scenic pathways, with 12 bridges, that provide access for walkers, joggers and cyclists to enjoy some of the most beautiful areas in Markham.

We take pride in keeping Markham beautiful. By maintaining our parks and public green spaces we promote an active and healthy quality of life.

The natural, unmanicured spaces in our community including woodlots, ravines and valleys, benefit our residents, plants and animals. These spaces are home to rare plant and insect species, and provide specialized foods and shelter to many types of native birds, bees and butterflies that they need for survival.
