Cootes Paradise is an active school community – 9/10 families who don’t take the bus, walk to school daily. This means that in the morning and afternoon, you’ll see many families enjoying the shops in Westdale Village, and using the sidewalks, crosswalks, and paths in our neighbourhood to get to their destinations

Survey Results


Here's what's happening at Cootes Paradise Elementary School

In spring 2023, members of the Cootes Paradise school community participated in a survey to identify how students are getting to school, the routes they take, and the barriers they face along the way. Below are the results of the survey which include:

  • Footprint map: This map shows all of the routes that were submitted in the survey
  • Infographic: The infographic is a summary of responses from the community. Percentages shown indicate proportion of respondents.

Data and analysis from the initial survey will be included in the DSR’s report of Ward 1. This will be completed in fall 2023 and any updates will be posted here.

Next steps will be based on action planning with the school community. Stay tuned for more details!
