Rum Running in Frenchman’s Bay

By August 14, 2014 February 5th, 2018 Histories

In the prohibition years in Ontario, Frenchman’s Bay was a port-of-entry for bootlegged liquor, brought into the bay by boat, transferred to cars and driven to Toronto. The powerful engines in rum-runners’ boats could outrun any coast guard vessels.

Durham Waterfront Trail

The Durham Waterfront Trail Map Your City pilot is a collaboration between Map Your City, Durham Region and the Waterfront Regeneration Trust.

Durham Waterfront Trail showcases the Durham Region section of the Waterfront Trail, including access points, amenities and the many things to see and do along the trail and in Durham’s beautiful waterfront communities. The map is available online and in a mobile app.

The best part? The map is interactive. You can add your own favorite places, share your stories and read and comment on other trail users’ experiences. You can even share from MYC to your Facebook friends and Twitter followers.

Whether you’re out for a day of leisurely family cycling, exploring diverse wetlands and wildlife, savouring a local delicacy at a waterfront café or enjoying free live music on a summer evening, there is so much to experience along Durham’s waterfront trail. We invite you to have fun and make Map Your City part of your trail experience!
