The Jamestown Community Foundation recently awarded a $5,000 grant to assist with the development of a handicap-accessible sensory garden among the trees of Solien-DeNault Park in northeast Jamestown, which is across Hillcrest Golf Course, near the Bunker.  

The project is a cooperative effort with the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department, the Jamestown Area Chamber of Commerce City Beautification Committee, the Freedom Resource Center and the city forester.

The park will have concrete pathways, benches and groupings of flower boxes and other items to be able to engage all the senses - sight, sound, smell, touch and taste. Work has begun this fall on the concrete pathways, and existing walking bridges in the park are going to be upgraded and stabilized so there is easy access throughout the park area.
