Green Lane Park

The improvements focus on the development of a passive park and walking trail on 5 acres of County open space within Union Township. Adjacent to Green Lane, the park will include a sidewalk extension along the public right-of-way, a ±14 space parking lot with ADA-accessible parking spaces, and parking lot lighting.

The interior of the park will feature an outdoor-inspired trail loop meandering through the woods and across a stream via a pedestrian bridge. To traverse the site’s natural wetlands, the trail will intermittently transition from gravel to a raised boardwalk. Along the way, passive recreation features will be incorporated in the design, including tree benches and swinging seats, nature-based playset equipment, and fitness equipment for patrons of all ages and abilities.

Visitors will also encounter interpretive signage, a sculpture garden, and community art display. The property’s existing trees and plants will be supplemented with pollinator gardens, shade gardens, and native plantings.
