Friends of Fulton Parks and city officials are looking to establish what they're calling the Teen Park in Fulton along Lake Neatahwanta, which would also help bridge a gap in an existing city nature trail.
The Teen Park is in the preparation phase of surveys, documentation and raising funds for a matching grant awarded to Friends of Fulton Parks from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
“While we are grateful for the $47,000 committed to the project so far, our goal is twice that amount; we can only be reimbursed for funds that are raised and spent on the proposed project” said Kelley Weaver, FoFP.
The Teen Park landscape design will include a portion of the Lake Neatahwanta Nature Trail.
Work crews will be cleaning and repairing the trail on Saturday and Sunday, August 27-28 from 9 to 11 a.m. Anyone interested in volunteering to dig, rake, cut brush, and remove debris may contact email@example.com, 402-7431.
Financial contributions can be made online at CrowdRise.com/Fulton-Teen-Park or mailed to P.O. Box 572 Fulton NY.
