Where we live: Town of Tonawanda

Town of Tonawanda

A cleanup of litter along the new Tonawanda Rails-to-Trails path will be held Saturday, in conjunction with Earth Day.

Construction of the new trail that runs through the town atop a former railroad bed started in 2015 and is expected to be completed in late spring. The trail will be maintained by the town’s Youth, Parks and Recreation Department.

Volunteers are asked to meet at Lincoln Arena, 1200 Parker Blvd., at 8:30 a.m. to receive assignments for the “rain or shine” cleanup. Volunteers are also asked to have their own transportation to other areas of the trail and wear appropriate pants, long sleeves, gloves and boots.

Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Donuts, pizza and drinks will be provided.

Sign up online at Call 831-1001 or email for more info.
