In July of 2021 the Town of Yarmouth, the federal government, and the province of Nova Scotia announced a $2.36 million investment in multi-use trails. This funding allows for completion of a series of multi-use trails/sidewalks, adding to trails already built. These shared paths will be fully accessible and will accommodate pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The trails will also offer pedestrian access in areas where no sidewalks were previously available. Multi-use trails are a key component of the town's Active Transportation Master Plan developed in 2010.
Work is set to begin soon on two new trails: a sidewalk extension on the north side of Starrs Road connecting existing sidewalk to the intersection and an extension of the trail from Haley Road westward down Forest Street, connecting to existing sidewalk in front of the high school.
