Letter: New Canaan Garden Club Seeks Support to Complete Flexi-Pave Path at Irwin Park


Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As you are probably aware, the New Canaan Garden Club along with the Town, is charged with maintaining and enhancing the beauty and accessibility of Irwin Park for all.  A survey conducted in the fall of 2018 by the Garden Club emphasized that Irwin is beloved by walkers who appreciate the safety offered by the Flexi-Pave path. However, the Flexi-Pave path was never completed on one side of the Park. Consequently, in bad weather, this area can be icy, muddy, and hard to navigate due to its uneven terrain.

I am asking for your help to close the Flexi-Pave trail loop and restore the Irwin Endowment. Please join me in support of this $75,000 project, approved by the Board of Finance and Town Council. At this time, we have raised $50,000 including $35,000 from the New Canaan Garden Club and need additional contributions of $25,000 to meet our goal.

We are proud of our past efforts to privately raise funds for the Flexi-Pave trails at Irwin Park which have brought so much enjoyment to the residents of Town. This project will have a lasting impact on the health and well-being of our community and serve as a magnet that will continue to draw families to our Town for many years to come.

For more information please contact Judy Neville at jneville13@aol.com.

Thank you,

Judy A. Neville
Treasurer, Irwin Park Committee, New Canaan Garden Club
