The Town of Remington with the Remington Park Board are currently working on funding for the development of trails in the Remington Community Park.  The trail plan was developed with the park master plan, and is ready for implementation.  The town has applied for the Jasper Foundation Impact Grant, and will be applying for the DNR Recreational Trails Grant.  A pass-thru account has been opened with the Jasper Foundation to allow donors to contribute to the trails plan, with their donation being tax deductible.
 
The trails can be accomplished in several sections.  There is the Park Loop Trail (1.02 miles), the Woodland Loop Trail (.6 miles), the Woodland Loop Spur Trail (.3 miles), and the North-South Connector Trail (6 miles).  The plan also includes using the old truss bridge, creating trailheads and nodes, and an interior walkway. A trailhead is a place to jump on the trail, and might include benches, a trash receptacle, a trail map, signage, bike racks, or other features.  The plan calls for 8' wide trails, with a buffer on each side.
 
In the master park plan, the trails were requested as well as a water feature.  The splash pad was added in the summer of 2015, and the park board has been raising funds to add more seating and shelters by the splash pad.
