HVA publishes Valley Greenway Guide

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

The Valley Greenway Guide of trails along the Housatonic and Naugatuck rivers in Shelton, Derby, Ansonia and Stratford is now available in Valley town halls, libraries and community centers. Copies are also available from HVA at 860-672-6678 and online at www.hvatoday.org. HVA published this full-color, informative guide with the generous support of Pitney Bowes, Sikorsky and the Valley Community Foundation.

The guide provides an easy reference to the trails, riverwalks, river overlooks and even an historic trolley route through the valley towns. Use the guide to walk, bird, skate, fish and cycle in places close to home. Users can explore miles of riverfront trails and community paths that connect Shelton, Derby, Ansonia and Stratford to the Naugatuck and Housatonic Rivers. The guide includes maps and details about the Shelton Riverwalk, Ansonia Riverwalk, the Bluff Walk, the Derby Greenway, Sikorsky Estuary Walk as well as trails on Birchbank Mountain, the Tahmore Trail and the Derby Ansonia Beltline Trail.

Jack Walsh, Executive Director of Valley United Way, said, “This new guide from HVA is bound to give people an entirely new impression of the incredible transformation underway in our area in developing our rivers and trails as recreational resources for our area. Our rivers and water courses once fueled our industry and economy, and now they are taking on a whole new life as recreational and environmental assets as clearly shown throughout this fantastic new guide.”
