HISTORY OF THE PARK

Vestal Community Organization members are largely responsible for the creation of Vestal Gateway Park. The park features a large gateway arch that frames the trail head, a pavilion, benches and a wildflower field. All of the park’s amenities, including the arch , were funded through community grants, matched by the neighborhood group.
