    The legacy of the late Colonel the Honourable Michael Starr will live on with the opening of the Michael Starr Trail.
    The official opening of the trail took place on October 11, 2001, just a short distance from the former home of the Starr family.
    The construction of the trail recognizes Colonel Starr's many contributions to the City of Oshawa, and Canada. Through a municipal/provincial partnership, the trail was built on the CN spur line the City acquired from the railway. The first phase of the development was between Lviv Boulevard and Athol Street, but it will eventually be extended north to Taunton Road. The trail will be a major recreational feature within the City and will provide a linear green corridor through some of the older residential areas, including the area where Michael Starr lived and raised his family. The trail provides people with the opportunity to experience passive recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat and green space. It runs through a large portion of the City's urban core and features an asphalt path, tree and shrub plantings, ground covers, benches and landscape entrance features.
