Hamden to Link Town Center Park to Farmington Canal Trail
by Staff ◊ Nov 05, 2010
Mayor Scott D. Jackson is pleased to announce that the Town is planning the creation of a “spur trail” from the Farmington Canal Greenway to Town Center Park. The spur trail will allow for greater accessibility to Town Center Park from the canal line for cyclists and pedestrians alike. This trail is one of numerous projects undertaken by the Town to increase “walk-ability” and encourage alternate means of transportation. Residents who want to enjoy the open green area of Town Center Park will also be able to park at the library and walk this trail.
Mayor Jackson adds, “This spur trail is an example of a project that allows for alternative transport – as well as additional recreational opportunities for our citizens. The trail will allow residents to access events and activities in Town Center Park directly from the Farmington Canal.”
The trail will be funded by grants from the State Department of Environmental Protection, as well as partial funding from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program.
