Community Trail Network

The North Manchester Parks and Recreation Department intends to create a Community Trail Network to benefit our town in many ways. The network will link people and places within the community through a safe, scenic and nonpolluting route. We believe the trails will promote unity among families, friends and neighbors, and will provide a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities, improve physical fitness, and offer opportunities to learn about nature, culture and history.

The proposed river boardwalk is designed to meander along the river corridor, connecting with school properties, the Ruppel Sports Complex, wetlands, community pool, Warvel Park, Halderman Park, Frantz Park, the Covered Bridge, library, the historic Thomas Marshall Home and Manchester College. Pedestrian bridges will cross the river and will provide spectacular views up and down the Eel River corridor.

The Parks and Recreation Department has applied for State and Federal grants to complete this project. Visit this Web site for updates on this project.
