riding the railpath

To coincide with the fifth anniversary of New York City's High Line, Condé Nast Traveler has a slide show of similar elevated parks found around the world. Third on the list—right after The High Line and Paris's Promenade Plantee—is the Junction's West Toronto Rail Path, which transformed the abandoned Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway spur into a scenic pedestrian and cycling route. The Railpath has proven so popular that plans are coming together to extend it right into the downtown core. [Conde Nast Traveler, photo Wikimedia]
