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.
The Roxbury Selectboard agreed to accept the donation of land for the development of a park in the village center of Roxbury. The property will be purchased from the owner and donated to the Town.
The property is a vacant lot located across from the Roxbury Village School. People will be able to sit, chat, play board games, 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.
The Roxbury Donor Fund was established to raise the funds needed to purchase the land from the current landowner. Once the sale is completed, the Roxbury Park will be owned by the Town of Roxbury for the enjoyment of all.
