Bayside Trail Groundbreaking

The groundbreaking for the new Bayside Trail is being held this Saturday, June 6th, at the corner of Marginal Way and Franklin Arterial. It will run from 10am-2pm and looks like quite an event. Check it out on the Portland Regional Chambers website, here. (4th article down)

Here is their description of the trail, which will be a great asset to the city:

The trail, which converts a 13.2 acre former railroad property into a walking trail with pocket parks, gardens and public gathering areas, will become a focal point for cultural activities and community programs, contribute to the economic vitality of the city, and improve the quality of life for the tens of thousands of residents, workers, and visitors to Portland each day.

In addition to providing a safe alternative transportation corridor through the redeveloping neighborhood of Bayside, this ribbon of green will provide a new gateway for Maine's largest city.
