Binney Park is a 32 acre parcel of land in the center of Old Greenwich, CT. The area shown was a underutilized area with a central commercial gazebo that was not being utilized by the town’s residents. After power-washing and repainting the gazebo, the town sought to develop a walking trail that was educational, as well as functional. The PlayTrails equipment installed circles around the central gazebo, and links an existing 2-5 aged playground structure with a heavily used softball field. It is now an extremely popular destination for parents to sit, relax, and watch their children during a ballgame, or while the kids read and learn about nature.
