Join Us for the Highland Rail Trail Community Meeting

Please join us for a virtual community meeting to learn more about the Highland Rail Trail Feasibility Study project.  The meeting will be held on the Zoom Platform, Wednesday March 31, 2021 at 6:30 pm (see Zoom details below).

The City's Department of Parks, Buildings & Recreation Management (PBRM) has been granted funding through the Community Preservation Act (CPA) to conduct a feasibility study to develop a bike trail  on the Highland Division Rail Trail – East Forest Park segment.  The Highland Division Rail Trail –East Forest Park segment is an approximate 1.7 mile rail trail along the old Boston to Maine rail line corridor (also known as the Highland Division Rail Trail) within Springfield. The study focuses on the trail segments from the Springfield/East Longmeadow border through to Hickory Street, passing through the Forest Park and East Forest Park neighborhoods. The rail trail corridor passes Sumner Avenue at Dorset and Perkins Street intersections; and Allen Street & Island Pond Road intersections.  Development of a bike trail will help improve pedestrian safety at these intersections, while also provide a recreational resource for the City of Springfield.
