Town Trails Team Walkabout
Meet at Veterans Park entrance stone pillars near the Bayside Y for a walk through the eastern side of the park to examine trails and wetlands in preparation for the next phase of park projects to improve trail conditions, close trails where needed and complete the new trail system. We will be walking off trail or in wet conditions as part of our review.
For All Projects: Dress for the day's weather. Long pants and sturdy shoes are recommended. Insect repellant is advisable year-round for tick protection
More About Veterans Memorial Park
The 245-acre heavily wooded park borders historic and picturesque Brickyard Pond, the East Bay Bike Path and the Bayside YMCA at the end of West Street. It includes a picnic area, benches, grills, a baseball field and toilet facilities. Bikers, joggers and walkers can enjoy the views and wildlife from the bike path on the edge of the pond. Fishing is allowed in season. A dirt walking path that starts at the picnic area cuts through the grass and winds along the edge of the shallow pond, where you can easily launch canoes, kayaks, rowboats and even some sailboats. There is plenty of free parking available at the end of a gravel roadway that starts by the welcome sign at the ball field.
