Earlier this year, the Township was awarded a $25,000 grant from CN, in partnership with America in Bloom, through their ExoConnexions From the Ground Up program. This program was established to provide matching grant funding to green communities where CN operates.
The Township is using this grant funding for the creation of another beautiful pocket park along the Baldwin corridor. This space will be transformed into a passive pocket park, featuring a pathway, benches, plants, and trees, as well as feature historical information about Gingellville Village.
