It is official. We now have an art walk in our city!
My other half and I checked it out after its recent unveiling to the public (yes that is Jim heading towards the trail).
It runs along the river in the old railroad bead that used to go to Boston between 1851 until 1931 (the train is now located on the other side of the river).
It starts with a gigantic wind chime featuring the city scape on top.
This trail is being used by walkers, runner and bikers.
Cameras and emergency boxes are located along the trail for safety and to keep the bad guys out.
This piece below symbolizes Haverhill with its nearby bridge, a sturgeon (a river resident), its founding year of 1640, and a shoe. This city was a shoe manufacturing hub back in the day.
This is a peaceful walk away from the hustle and bustle that would be a relaxing place to read a book (which we witnessed a gentleman doing).
The river here is not all that picturesque however if you stop and take a moment, you notice beauty. I do love fuzzy things that grow by water.
I hope you enjoyed our little outing. We love seeing improvements like this to our city which has been making quite a comeback in recent years!
Thank you for stopping by! ~Val
