Rail-Trail Work Day

Saturday March 22
9:00 - 12:00
Meet at Historic Wooden Trestle, Dudley Park
The engineering firm of O'Brien & Gere, contracted by ACC to guide the Rail-Trail committee through project design and construction, has suggested that it would be a good idea to "stabilize" the historic wooden trestle in Dudley Park by getting rid of vines that are beginning to overtake it.
So from 9:00 - 12:00 Saturday morning, volunteers will be gathering at the foot of the trestle in Dudley Park to help with this task. The ACC Rail-Trail Committee and ACC Leisure Services would appreciate your help. Please come prepared with a pair of work gloves. You can bring tools if you wish, but ACC will also have tools on hand to loan out.
Parking for the event is available in the Chicopee lot off Broad Street (across from the Chicopee Building), or in the Dudley Park lot on Poplar Street (behind Mama's Boy restaurant).
Upcoming in April - Look ahead to a public meeting sometime in April to view and comment on concept plans for the Rail-Trail!
