Shoreline Greenway Annual Meeting

Since steady rain is forecast for Friday, you may not want to walk the Tabor Trail at 5:00.  We’ll be there just in case.  But you can still come to the Tabor Lutheran Church for our 6:00 annual meeting and presentation by Giovanni Zinn.  He’ll be talking about how he and his team were successful in turning New Haven into a bicycle-friendly city.  We’re hoping to pick  up some tips on how to make that happen in our shoreline towns. 
And you’ll still have time after the meeting to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Madison Trail Extension Nearly Complete

A westward extension of the Shoreline Greenway Trail from Hammonasset Beach State Park is nearly complete. The 750-foot extension, connecting the existing one-mile trail in Hammonasset with Webster Point Road, is open and ready for use while we put a few finishing touches on it.  Walkers, hikers and bikers can now use the trail and local roads rather than a dangerous stretch of Route 1 to travel between Hammonasset State Park, downtown Madison, Madison’s beaches, shoreline recreational facilities and tourist destinations.

A cyclist stopped by to say hello to Perry Rianhard, SGT Trailmaster, as he worked on the bridge of the trail section connecting Hammonasset Beach State Park to Webster Point Road.
