HALLOWEEN AT GARRISON PARK!

The Recreation Commission will be setting up a drive thru Halloween display at Garrison Park on Halloween Night (October 31st) 

Join Us from 6-8pm to see some spooky fun displays! 

We want families and community members to be assured we are following safe guidelines concerning Covid-19. We are asking that whoever joins us remains in their vehicle during the event. This is a non-contact event. The recreation commission will have a candy chute at the end to drop candy into cars of those who would like a sweet treat at the end! There will be signs to follow through the path of displays. Dress up and come have fun!

Airline Trail

Though the rails are long gone, this rail bed once offered fashionable, rapid transit from New York to Boston.  Those who travel the corridor today witness the same inspiring panoramas and absorb the same solitude that has greeted travelers since the line was constructed. Stretching across eastern Connecticut from Thompson to East Hampton, this linear trail dates from the 1870s, and today draws walkers, hikers, horseback riders and bikers from across the state for the views, the relaxation and the solitude.

The Town of Chaplin has made some recent improvements in 2014 to the Airline Trial and will also be purchasing benches and signs using grant funds.
