Clean Canada TogetherClean Caledon Together

Caledon is joining municipalities across the country, in partnership with GLAD’s Clean Canada Together campaign, to support efforts in keeping Caledon clean. The Town will support community clean-up initiatives to help ensure their success.

Clean Caledon Together 2019 will run from April 22, 2019 until mid-May. 

To register your clean-up date and location:

If you’re a resident, a community group or a business and would like to participate in a community clean up, let us help. The Town will provide bags for garbage and recyclables, compliments of GLAD, along with plastic gloves, safety information and guidelines, and removal of filled bags from designated locations.

Clubs, schools and businesses will be required to provide a certificate of insurance with the Town of Caledon named as additional insured. Neighborhood groups must have all participants sign a waiver provided by the Town.

We will add your community clean up to our community events calendar can include your email. If others are interested in joining you, they can contact you directly. Share your clean up story on Facebook and Twitter to inspire others to do the same: #CleanCanadaTogether, #CleanCaledonTogether.

The Caledon Trailway: 35 km for you to discover! 

The Town of Caledon purchased a section of the abandoned railway in 1989.  In 1994, work began to create a multi-use trailway that promotes the enjoyment and understanding of Caledon's unique cultural and natural features. 

The trail bisects all major landscape features in Caledon:  the Humber & Credit Rivers, the Oak Ridges Moraine and the Niagara Escarpment.  Stationlands Parks can be found in Caledon East (site of the Trans Canada Trail pavilion), Palgrave, Cheltenham and Inglewood.

The Great Trail 

Caledon Trail Pavillion

The Trans Canada Trail, re-named The Great Trail, stretches nearly 24,000 kilometres from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic oceans, linking Canadians in close to 1000 communities. To most, the trail can be accessed within 30 minutes.

On August 26, 2017 Caledon celebrated the connection of the Trans Canada Trail with a new Pavilion and commemorative stone. Caledon's Trans Canada Trail pavilion was the first of its kind in Canada, built in 1996. The Caledon Trailway was the very first designated portion of the Trans Canada Trail. The park also features Caledon's Walk of Fame.
