Be part of the trail!  The Lake Wallace Sensory Trail is the beginning of an eventually town-wide Belchertown Heritage Trails Network.  The Lake Wallace Sensory Trail is to be fully accessible linking Jessica's Boundless Playground to Foley Field.  This is the core of the coming network and will directly connect to the redevelopment of the former State School, known as Carriage Grove.  Please contribute to our grant match and spread the word!!
