Amenities on the site: Families will be invited to share the community garden to grow their own food and flowers. Nearby, children will have a safe area for playing, with sand box and swings. The residential space will be situated on the flat of the land, with a path leading up the mountainside to a spot where one can sit for quiet contemplation or birding, with walking trails for exploring and recreation. Landscaped with native plants, evergreens and fruit trees, the site will be pleasing to the eye while also providing apples, pears, and berries to families in residence.
Accessible to town center: Forest Springs is within an easy walk to Route 7 and shopping in either direction. An agreement with the BRTA will also allow for on-call bus pick-up and drop-off at the project for those without vehicles.
