Baxter Trail Ribbon Cutting

Friday, October 25, 2019

We hope you can join us for the ribbon cutting for the new Baxter Trail on October 25th at 1pm at Back Cove parking lot. Stretching from Back Cove to Evergreen Cemetery, the 2.5 mile Baxter Trail route memorializes the contributions of the Baxter family in creating our world-class park and trail system. Following existing trails and sidewalks, the trail passes through many parks and neighborhoods that were created or influenced by the Baxter family. Interpretive signage along the way tells the story of Mayor James Phinney Baxter, Governor Percival Baxter, and their families. The event will include a ribbon cutting followed by an optional walk of the 2.5 mile route, led by Parks staff and Commissioners.
