The Open Space Institute is playing a big role in bringing the transformative power of trails to communities where we work.
Well-maintained, easily accessible trails can play an important role in making communities more livable, healthy, and prosperous. Trails can provide family-friendly fun and support active lifestyles for people of all ages and physical abilities — and they have the power to increase property values, attract regional tourism, and stimulate local economies.
The Open Space Institute (OSI) is playing a big role in bringing the transformative power of trails to communities where we work. Thriving parks and access to trails promote vibrant, healthy communities. As OSI reinvigorates, repairs, and develops trails in and around the Shawangunk Ridge, our projects are bringing these places closer to achieving a vision as a world class destination for trails.
