Posted on 09/01/2020

AARPWilton has been awarded a $19,711 national AARP Community Challenge grant to complete an ADA-compliant trail for the Wilton Riverwalk.  This award represents one of only two awards issued by the AARP Community Challenge in New Hampshire, and 184 nationwide!

 The grant will fund the creation of a solar-lighted, ADA-compliant walkway along the northern bank of the Stony Brook River, with trees, plantings, a kiosk, placemaking signage, and access to fishing spots. The new trail will now enable the full completion of the Phase 2 Riverwalk, and will eventually link to a proposed pedestrian bridge spanning Stony Brook to complete a full loop around the western section of downtown. 

TDSThis project is also made possible through the generous contribution of TDS Telecom in Wilton of an easement for the land they own along the river.  TDS has been a valued presence in downtown Wilton for more than 17 years, and the town is grateful for their contribution to the multi-year Riverwalk project.

For full details, see the press release.
