River Walk is a community-built riverside trail along the Housatonic
River in downtown Great Barrington, Massachusetts, and a laboratory
for natural resource protection, horticulture, and environmental
stewardship. Here, 2780 young people and citizen volunteers are
working to reclaim the beauty of a "working river" once
abandoned to PCB contamination and centuries of industrial abuse
Managed by the Great Barrington Land Conservancy and cared for
by Greenagers, the Housatonic River Walk was designated a National
RecreationTrail in 2009. RiverWalk is a site on the Upper Housatonic
Valley African American Heritage Trail and home to the W.E.B.
Du Bois River Park and William Stanley Overlook.
