THE STORY:

The Putnam Trail is a beautiful and historic 1.5 mile trail in Van Cortlandt Park. This trail is currently a dirt path that cuts through the park, between Van Cortlandt Lake and Tibbetts Brook.

Last spring, when the NYC Parks Department announced plans to pave the trail, there was expressed disapproval from the community. The planned expansion would involve paving a 10-foot-wide path over the currently 8-foot-wide trail, and then to include only three feet of an aggregate surface for runners and drainage purposes on one side, and a two-foot buffer on the other side.

The purpose of the Save the Putnam Trail campaign is to stop the Parks Department from doing this! We are advocating to keep the trail at its current 8-foot width and to resurface it with stone dust rather than paving it with asphalt. Please support us in our mission to save the Putnam Trail!
