A More Connected Groveland
The Groveland Community Trail will unite many community areas including The Pines Recreation Area, Groveland Dog Park, the future Center Street Greenway, Shanahan Field, Bagnall Elementary School, Perry Park School, Groveland Center, Elm Park, the Langley-Adams Public Library, Groveland Town Hall, and the Groveland Police & Fire Departments. There will also be walking access to River's Edge Plaza in Haverhill via Bates Bridge. The trail will be publicly accessible by multiple neighborhoods.
The Groveland Community Trail will offer future opportunities to connect into a larger regional trail network. It will connect with regional efforts like the Border to Boston Trail via Georgetown, the Bradford Rail Trail in Haverhill, and the to-be-determined Merrimack River Trail. As seen in its proposed route, the Groveland's trail uniquely aligns our community with a growing state and national focus of recreational and rail trail development.
The Groveland Community Trail will be a source of pride for current and future generations, and offer benefits for all ages and abilities. When complete, this shared-use "rail-trail" path will create positive and lasting experiences for walkers, joggers, bicyclists, inline skaters, families with children in strollers, wheelchair users and other outdoor enthusiasts.
The Groveland Community Trail will offer a new way for parents and children to safely commute to school creating an alternative and safe route for families to travel to and from the Bagnall Elementary School & Perry Park School.
