Orchard Park Sherwood Forest Ratepayers Group is a London, Ontario, Canada based neighbourhood organization serving the Orchard Park and Sherwood Forest areas of London.
The area is approximately bounded on the west by Wonderland Road, Sarnia Road on the South, Gainsborough Road to the North, the University of Western Ontario and the Medway Valley.
City staff have advised that the pedestrian bridge construction will be delayed a couple weeks as they wait for some metal fabrication. Once they get the metal components, it won’t take much to finish up. Work on the storm sewer outfall project continues in the meantime. The plan is to reopen the Metamora trail access after slope remediation is concluded.
In the meantime, please don’t take the fencing off the post where it says trail closed. That section of trail is going to be realigned and closed and revegetated as part of this project due to the erosion on the Creek side of the trail. Please let nature restore it.
Please also stay on the actual trail when you are in the Valley. The actual trails are marked with a yellow arrow on trees. Be a guardian of the Medway, stay on the main trail, follow the yellow arrows.
There are been some recent vehicle break ins in the neighborhood. Two vehicles were reported to have been broken into last week in the area of Longbow and Wychwood, and a vehicle was stolen from near the Annadale side of Sherwood Forest Park. Remember to lock your vehicle when it’s left outside.
The City of London has started community consultation for the new Mobility Master Plan – a plan that will determine how we build our streets, sidewalks, bike lanes, transit routes and paths for the next 25 years.
They want to hear what it’s like for you to move around the city, from one place or activity to another. Let the City know what would make your daily trips easier and how we can improve by sharing your mobility experience with us today!
