The Trans Canada Trail is a 21,500 kilometre (13,437 mi.) recreational trail winding its way through every province and territory, from the Atlantic to Pacific to Arctic Oceans.  When completed, it will be world's longest recreational trail, linking close to 1000  communities and over 33 million Canadians. Today almost 70 percent (14,500 kilometres) is developed.

Thousands of people are taking to the Trail to walk, hike, cycle, ski, horseback ride, canoe and snowmobile. The trail is equipped with regularly spaced pavilions such as the one in our area.

Located at the Tiffin Street, Lakeshore Drive Park, this pavilion was officially opened on July 1st, 2001. This is one pavilion in a series of those across Canada, all constructed exactly the same.

The construction of the pavilion was initiated by the Rotary Club of Barrie Environmental Committee, and constructed with the aid of individual donations (names of donators on the interior) with much of the material donated by local businesses.
