Kingston Point Rail Trail Clean-Up!
The City of Kingston and the Kingston Land Trust are hosting a clean-up for the Kingston Point Rail Trail (KPRT) to prepare the trail for opening by removing debris from the banks of the pathway.
Volunteers will gather at the Jansen Avenue Trailhead behind the Walgreens on Broadway at 9:30am and will traverse the trail picking up trash and recyclables to beautify the path and prepare it for opening. Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves and wheelbarrows, if available. Parking is available at the Rondout Savings Employee Parking Lot on E. Chester Street for the Saturday event. The City’s Department of Public Works will pick up and dispose of all refuse found along the trail.
The Kingston Point Rail Trail, which has recently been paved, is not yet open to the public, as it is an active construction site. Work is still being done, which includes completing the trailheads, and installing furniture, landscape plantings, electrical connections, fencing and crossings. Visitors should not yet be utilizing the trail. The grand opening will be announced this summer.
