More to Explore at Taylor Farm Park

Exciting news! Taylor Farm Park has completed many updates. The back trail is now open to the public, and the expanded parking lot features accessible, paved handicap parking spots. The restrooms and community garden will tentatively open July 3. Playground sunshades and a pavilion are pending permits, with pavilion construction expected later this summer. Handrails will be installed on pedestrian bridges in mid-July, and the final boardwalk paving near Greensward is set for July 15, opening soon after.

Regarding the eagerly awaited new community garden, Healthy New Albany will use this year as an experimental season to test the new plots and amenities. The new garden features water spigots, bathrooms, tables, seating, a fire pit, native plants, and three different 4×12 raised beds for those who cannot bend over. The 2025 gardening season will open to the public, with registration details becoming available on Healthy New Albany’s website in late fall.
