Tyngsborough, MA – MassDevelopment and the civic crowdfunding platform Patronicity recently launched a new Commonwealth Places campaign with the town of Tyngsborough for a walking trail and community gathering space.
If the campaign reaches its crowdfunding goal of $12,500 by June 1 at midnight, the project will win a matching grant with funds from MassDevelopment’s Commonwealth Places program.
The proposed pedestrian-friendly linear park will be on the waterfront area behind the First Parish Meeting House, near the heart of Tyngsborough. The space is overgrown and underused, and this campaign aims to reclaim the area and make it an asset for the community.
Creating a natural pathway to stroll along the waterfront and installing picnic tables, benches, and light posts will allow Tyngsborough residents and visitors to enjoy the beautiful views along the banks of Lower Flint Pond.
“The Town of Tyngsborough’s vision for this waterfront park will help unlock the area’s potential and create myriad opportunities for community gathering,” said MassDevelopment President and CEO Lauren Liss. “We look forward to supporting the town’s efforts in making this dream a reality.”
