In addition, countless hours of volunteer labor and individual donations were the backbone of the project. Town highway crews and golf-course workers, along with prisoners from Moriah Shock Incarceration Correctional Facility, dug, sawed, put up slides and cleared the pathways. Other neighborhood volunteers planted flowers; installed the musical toys, park benches and picnic tables; and built the bridges that cross the wetland areas. 

“It’s so nice to get away from everything,” said Kristi Pierson, who was enjoying a picnic lunch near the footbridge and river with her daughters, Elise and Allie.

“It’s great what they did with the path. The girls took me through it a few days ago.”
