A ribbon was cut this weekend in New Milford for the Young's Field Riverfront Trail.
Work for the quarter mile walkway along the Housatonic included removing dead trees, stabilizing the riverbank, native plantings to replace invasive species, paving a 10-foot wide path and installing a fishing dock and kayak launch.
The Young's Field Riverfront Trail will be part of the New Milford River Trail. That 13 mile trail, 5 of which have already been completed, will link to the Still River Greenway in Brookfield.
Grant funding and private donations paid for the Young's Field Riverfront Trail work.
