Now that the ADA-compliant bridges are in, we plan to continue work on the accessible section of our trail this summer. We also hope to expand the trail system with foot paths and a bog walk that circumnavigates the property and connects the two schools that share our boundary to the south.
One of our accessible sections of the ADA-compliant trail will lead people to the pond. Last year we received a grant from the Davis Conservation Foundation and we started the process by prepping the ground for building this trail. We have plans to complete the surface of this trail this summer.
The Patio Garden and Summerhouse
One of the accessible bridges takes you over to the patio garden and Summerhouse. The Patio garden will be filled with Maine's diminutive native plants—those often found on mountain ledges. The patio stones create the soil pockets that help to contain each species for enjoyment. The Summerhouse is meant to be an information booth and a place to rest and enjoy woodland spaces on one side and sunny flowers on the other.
We plan to complete the plantings around the front of the library with sun-loving plants, and finish building out the east side staff entrance and add woodland plantings.
