We’ve laid out the Park so you can see what it should look like upon completion. Stop by and take a look!

08/23: Latest Project Update!
The Roxbury Parks reps presented the initial plan for the park’s layout with a costing proposal at the Aug. 23rd Selectboard meeting. The proposal is subject to modification. Donations will be accepted for the construction of ADA-compliant walkways, plantings, and items for the park: gazebo, chess set, ping pong table, benches, etc.
A donor has generously provided shrubs, hostas and hydrangeas for the privacy hedges and other areas.

Northfield News article on the development of the Roxbury Park in Roxbury, VT.

Third Branch Park

The town of Roxbury VT has one public park. The Park is located along VT Route 12A at the base of Carrie Howe Road. Here, people can sit and eat a meal, walk along the river, and relax on their way to points North and South. A great place to exercise your dogs, rehydrate on that long bicycle trek, or just catch some rays.

Roxbury Park

The Roxbury Park Development Fund was established to raise the funds needed to purchase and develop the land. The Roxbury Park is owned by the Town of Roxbury and is now in the development phase. Funds will be raised through grants, gifts in kind, and contributions.

The property is a vacant lot located across from the Roxbury Village School on Rte 12A.
People will be able to sit in the gazebo, play chess on a large chessboard, enjoy a snack , take a cycling tour stop, or wait for their children to leave school, all under the shade of the exceptionally large tree on the site. ADA-compliant walkways are planned throughout the park. The site has signage showing the planned layout.
