The Shinrin Yoku trails include improvements to the existing pathway system through the addition of mulch, interpretive signage and seating. The Park Renaissance Program worked with the Global Institute of Forest Therapy (GIFT) a registered non-profit organization, to create the interpretive signage for the Shinrin Yoku trails. Each trail has its own unique interpretive signage, to create places where individuals and groups can go to for a self-guided Shinrin Yoku experience.

Markham is proud to announce that the Springdale Park and Valley trail is the first GIFT designated trail in all of Canada!
