The Boardwalk is open!
This boardwalk is for foot travel and wheelchair use only. It is accessible for anyone with limited mobility or using a wheelchair. Therefore, bicycles are prohibited so that everyone can enjoy the boardwalk safely. It is a great place for a quiet stroll into the trees, to enjoy nature, and to relax.
Governor Dick Park was awarded a $175,000 grant through DCNR for the construction of the accessible boardwalk which is located just south of the Environmental Center. This grant is half the cost of the walkway, and you are invited to partner with us in giving the gift of nature to those less mobile. You can sponsor a 4” x 8” memorial brick to be placed along the sidewalk leading to the start of the walkway. Memorial bricks may be sponsored for $100. Mini souvenir bricks (1.5” x 3” x 0.5”) with felt backing are available for $20.
Bricks will be installed when concrete is poured for the sidewalk to the new waterless restroom near the Environmental Center.
