Trail Improvements and Closures at For-Mar
A new water supply line for the Genesee County Drain Commission is being partially installed underground through For-Mar. Staff is working closely with the contractors to ensure minimal disruption to the beauty and use of For-Mar as this takes place and to make certain that the property is returned to its natural state upon completion. In return, some improvements are coming to For-Mar! The gravel pathways through the center of the park are being re-graveled and leveled and the Potter Road entrance drive is being paved. In order to do so, some temporary trail closures will take place.
Effective immediately, and until further notice, trails 17 thru 23 will be closed to the public due to the pipeline construction taking place in those areas.
We appreciate your patience during these projects and look forward to sharing the improved trails with all of you!
