Recreational Opportunities

Pitney Meadows Community Farms' 166 acres encompass farm fields, forests, wetlands, springs and Geyser Creek access.  A comprehensive trail plan is in design which will promote access for recreation on the farm. It will include trails for walking, biking, birding, fishing access points, educational signage designating points of interest and wildlife viewing opportunities. The trails will also emphasize the farming projects at the Farm. Some trails will be ADA accessible. The system is being designed to connect to and incorporate the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail connecting the western neighborhoods to the Railroad Run trail, downtown Saratoga Springs and the State Park. The trails are being designed with input from a diverse group of stakeholders who contribute at monthly trails committee meetings. Our Board members Peter Goutos and Kim Feeney London are leading the program, fulfilling on behalf of the Farm a commitment to the City to establish recreational opportunities for the public. This exciting project is anticipated to result in up to two miles of trails, some configured in loops and some to destination points of interest.  The team is striving to begin trail construction in the summer of 2019.
