On the Boards: Mt Tom Trailhead Park Design Development

Dodson & Flinker completed the schematic design for a new park on the lower slope of Mount Tom in Easthampton, Massachusetts, and is currently working on the next phases of design, permitting, and construction documentation. The park will include a parking area, a 2,000 foot accessible trail, a meadow-shrubland restoration area, an overlook, and trailheads to adjacent trail systems on Mount Tom and Little Mountain, a parcel acquired by Kestrel Land Trust. Several design concepts were explored and discussed at a public workshop and through online surveys. Input from the workshop and surveys led to the preferred design which was successfully used to secure grant funding to complete construction for the project.
