Veterans Park Trail Improvements
The Town has a $100,000 RIDEM grant to improve the trail system at Veterans Memorial Park. The project has received the required permits from RIDEM. Construction is expected to begin in late summer/early fall of 2015.
The project will enhance trails throughout the park, to include:
- Improving a trail from the East Bay Bike Path to Legion Way;
- Constructing elevated walkways through wet/wetland areas on Town open space property between the YMCA and the Barrington Shopping Center;
- Improving trails on the east side of Brickyard Pond, to include vegetative restoration on eroded embankments and constructed overlooks providing views of the water;
- New signage to help orient and educate users of the trails.
Some of the trail work will require volunteers. Volunteer trail days will be announced.
