Celebrated National Public Trails Day with June 6 2015 Clark's Pond and Long Creek Trail Maintenance
As part of National Public Trails Day, the South Portland Land Trust oversaw several projects including the reconditioning of the Long Creek Trail and the improvement of the Clarks Pond Trail.
The Maine Mall Wellness Loop
The City of South Portland has improved sidewalks around one third of the perimeter of The Maine Mall. The SPLT has certified the quarter mile marks around the 1.5 mile route. The sign posts and mile marker signs, shown above, have been installed.
The loop trail passes by the newly improved South Branch Trail, so if you are ready for a creekside stroll, give it a try as well.
The South Branch Trail has been resurfaced and improved with a kiosk and picnic tables. The trail is located on Philbrook Avenue across from the JC Penneys entrance to The Maine Mall. We used stone dust to hold off the surrounding grass and will later top dress this with trail mulch to better cushion your feet.
