Description: The David J. Culham Trail is named for former Ward 6 Councillor, David J. Culham. Culham was born in 1942 and earned a B.A. degree from Wilfrid Laurier University and a Masters in Geography and Planning from Western University. He taught in London, North York and Mississauga, where he was Department Head at Cawthra Secondary School. He was one of the longest serving councillors in Mississauga, from 1973 to 2000 during which time he was responsible for a number of initiatives including Mississauga's first Official Plan, the blue box recycling program, and a policy of dedication of valley land by developers in Mississauga to allow for the creation of a trail system and the preservation of the Credit River Valley. The David J. Culham Trail begins in Erindale Park at 1695 Dundas Street West, east of Mississauga Road. It is 18 km in length, continues along the Credit River and is designed to provide pedestrians and cyclists with a route from Erindale Park up the Credit River Valley to the City of Brampton.
