Rotary Park refurbished to be ADA accessible

Rotary Park's ADA Trail in progress.

Montgomery County Government is pleased to announce the completion of the new ADA Trail at Rotary Park. The public to join us for a trail ribbon cutting on Thursday, June 5 at 5 p.m. The ceremony will be held at the first pavilion on the right at the bottom on the hill inside Rotary Park.

The new trail widened and leveled the original paths, which still snake through the landscape along the brook but allow access by wheelchair and walker, allowing the disabled to enjoy the nature trail.  A long iron bench sits at the trailhead, allowing visitors to rest. The trail itself is a long concrete sidewalk that winds serpentine without distracting from the plants, trees and wild flowers.

County Mayor Carolyn Bowers states, “We are so pleased to have this trail completed for citizens to enjoy. We invite everyone to come out and take advantage of the new trail, opened just in time for National Trails Day on June 7. It’s a beautiful trail and I hope it is enjoyed by many, for years to come.”

Rotary Park is a 100-acre nature park located near the Sango community. It is easily accessible one block southeast of the Highway 76/Highway 41 intersection. This park boasts over five miles of hiking/biking trails, pavilions and a playground.
