The Governor's Greenways Council designated two new State greenways at a ceremony this morning. One is the New Milford River Trail Greenway. The primary purpose of the greenway is to provide recreational opportunities in the form of a 13 mile long trail following the Housatonic and the Still Rivers.
The Historic New Milford Village Center is located adjacent to the proposed Greenway. It also offers educational opportunities related to the historic Boardman Bridge.
It also connects to Town and State Parks such as Sega Meadows Park, the Young's Field Ballfields and the Young's Field River Walk Trail, Hidden Treasure Park, Lover's Leap State Park, Harrybrooke Park and the Boardman Road Ballfields as well as the regional Housatonic Riverbelt and Still River Greenways.
