Tomorrow, September 7, 2023, the City of Westfield will hold a ribbon cutting for the Central (Downtown) Section of the Columbia Greenway, running between Main Street and the Westfield River Esplanade.

Central Section Ribbon Cutting

According to the web site of the Friends of the Columbia Greenway, “One of the only elevated urban rail trails in the United States, the Columbia Greenway Rail Trail follows the former New York/New Haven/Hartford Railroad, weaving its way through downtown Westfield and surrounding neighborhoods before crossing farmland and ending at the Southwick city line. The path continues into Southwick and extends as far south as New Haven, Connecticut as part of the larger New Haven & Northampton Canal Greenway.”

Congratulations to our friends in Westfield for this latest accomplishment! We encourage everyone to check it out!
