On Wednesday, July 21, Town officials and former Girl Scouts gathered on the shores of Long Pond to formally open the new ADA trail & parking lot on the site of the former Camp Kiwanis Property. This project was funded through a grant from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs and a match from our own Community Preservation Committee (CPC).
With these funds, the Town was able to construct a fully accessible trail that leads from the newly constructed parking lot right to the shores of Long Pond for all to enjoy. At the end of the trail, residents will find a nice sitting area featuring two benches that the Sustainability Committee earned by collecting and properly recycling a large quantity of plastic bags, and one bench donated by former Girl Scouts in honor of long time Camp Kiwanis Director Muriel “Scottie” Lafond.
The trail is now open to the public and all are encouraged to check it out. The parking lot is accessible at 17 Alden Street.
