The Norwalk River Valley Trail gets a big grant
$180,000 in federal grant money will be a big step towards building the Norwalk River Valley Trail, a bike trail from Norwalk to Danbury. The approval of the grant was announced at an uplifting press conference this morning in Union Park.
Currently there is a stretch of trail from the aquarium up to Lockwood Mathews, another stretch from the YMCA up to Union Park and a third stretch from New Canaan Ave up to Broad St.
With this grant money, hopefully we will soon be able to stitch these segments together into a contiguous, connected bikeway. Biking for fun, biking to school and biking to work may get the red carpet treatment it deserves.
