Town of Goshen and the Olive G Pettis Library (11 × 17 in) (4)

The Goshen Discovery Park project was first conceived of in 2019. The trustees were inspired to create a space for the community to enjoy the outdoors, learn, and explore together. Since then, we have done a lot of work, and as of 2022, the Discovery Park is finally underway!

In collaboration with the Goshen Selectboard, the library trustees have applied for and successfully been awarded a grant from the National Parks Service. This grant is for the amount over 74,000 dollars and we now have to raise matching funds. Your support via volunteerism and/or donations are invaluable to this project. 

Below you will find the artist's rendition of our vision of the full park and the tiers of donation for you to consider.

The photos above are from our official groundbreaking event on October 25th, 2022.
