Copp Family Park
If you have visited the Copp Family Park lately you may have noticed some exciting changes taking place. Work on the first phase of the new trail project is now complete!
The long-term plan for the trail improvements is to establish one trail that loops through the property providing access to various features and to increase accessibility for users. A future phase of the project is the development of a trail “spine” that will run from the existing parking lot to the Old Homestead.
These improvements are being made in an effort to meet the needs and wants of the community. In a 2009 survey, community members expressed a desire for community-wide walking trails and increased trails within existing parks.
In addition to the expansion at the Copp Family Park, numerous other trail projects have been identified but are currently underfunded. Many of these projects would help meet the goal of creating a community-wide trail network. The Trails Task Force, a group which represents numerous trail advocacy groups in Groton, has initiated a campaign to advocate for and raise awareness of trails within Groton to help meet the demand for more and better trails in town.
