Oshawa’s Waterfront Trail getting new, smartphone-enabled signage


It’s part of a project led by students and staff from Durham College’s School of Media, Art and Design, in partnership with TeachingCity Oshawa.

You can use your smartphone camera to scan these codes and find information, directions and more.

Using your phone, you can learn about the various parks, points of interest and amenities on the trail.

“This is another example of the how TeachingCity initiatives are advancing the City of Oshawa as a leading city of urban research and learning,” said Mayor Dan Carter. “The creativity and resourcefulness of this interactive information portal has created a fun and inventive way for our families and visitors to explore the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail in Oshawa. I look forward to seeing it more across our city.”

“This TeachingCity initiative is a great example of how innovative experiential learning opportunities can be used to enhance our community,” added Durham College President Don Lovisa. “Our students were able to use the skills and knowledge acquired in their programs and apply them in the real world, bringing concepts and constructs to life in a meaningful and creative way. I hope community members walking along the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail enjoy the results of the students’ hard work.”
