More Room for Trails

Saturday, December 4 by silvia

Birch FungusWest Windsor’s latest acquisition of open space fits in with a strategy of developing a network of trails linking natural areas.? The latest purchase is 27.59 acres along Clarksville Road next to a nesting area for? blue herons.? The trail will run from Clarksville Road to parking lot (or nearest walking path) at the rear of Duck Pond Park, which fronts on Meadow Road, and will be developed in partnership with Friends of West Windsor Open Space (FOWWOS).

Because the path would cross Duck Pond Run and go through rather thick woods protected by wetlands restrictions, permits from the State Department of Environmental Protection will be needed.

FOWWOS was instrumental in developing the trails in the Millstone and Zaitz Preserves with help from the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance.

This latest acquisition will be paid for by funds from the township’s dedicated open space fund, Mercer County’s open space fund, and FOWWOS.
