Londonderry’s Rail Trail Celebration This Saturday!

May 01, 2014 No Comments by

It’s been a long winter. Get outside and welcome spring and enjoy Londonderry’s first mile of completed rail trail. This Saturday, May 3rd there will be Rail Trail celebration with family-fun activities on the trail from 10 am to 2 pm. A major access point for the trail is the Londonderry North Elementary School parking lot off of Sanborn Road. In the school parking lot there will be a hot dog stand, music and the occasional sound of an antique train whistle. Also, recently added, Segway rides!

Find your walking shoes, inflate the tires on your bicycle, grab a scooter, baby stroller, or a walking stick and come enjoy a walk in the woods on a flat, paved surface away from motorized traffic. The first mile of trail was officially opened on November 20th, only to be covered by snow, until recently. This is a community trail. Volunteers cleared the trail and residents passed a warrant article on March 12, 2013 to fund the paving. Get out and enjoy the trail and celebrate the arrival of spring May 3rd. The trail may also be accessed off of Symmes Drive near the Exit 5 Park and Ride. April school vacation is a great time to get out and use the Rail Trail!
