TROY, NY – On Saturday, June 9, dozens of local volunteers and representatives from the City of Troy, Friends of Prospect Park, Troy Little Italy Quality of Life Committee, and the National Park Service Rivers & Trails Program participated in the 2nd annual cleanup day for Troy’s “Garnet Douglass Baltimore Trail,” a recently restored half-mile walking trail located in the southwest corner of Troy’s historic Prospect Park. The trail expands the historic park’s trail system, directly connecting the peak of the 80-acre city park to the Little Italy and South Troy neighborhoods. The trail is named in honor of Garnet Baltimore, a distinguished civil engineer and landscape designer, and the first African-American engineer and graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (1881) who designed the now historic Prospect Park.
