RUNNEMEDE LAKE PARK TRAIL RESTORATION INITIATIVE
Reimagine Runnemede volunteers have been prompted to organize a trail restoration initiative at Runnemede Lake Park. At a time when outdoor activities are promoted, this project will engage and benefit our whole community.
Did you know? Over 1,000 Runnemede residents signed a petition to save a special tract of land from a developer and preserve it as “a place of public resort and recreation in perpetuity.” The year was 1965. Residents joined to blaze trails, build bridges as well as a pavilion around a healthy Hirsch's Lake. Let’s revive that spirit and collective energy!
With the support of Runnemede Mayor and Council, Runnemede Green Team and in partnership with our Local Scouts we are creating a citizen task force to restore the hiking trails.
