Parks & Trails Information
Hard copies are available at the office, or call 985-9551 to have one mailed to you.
Located off Harbor Road across from Shelburne Community School. Facilities include lighted tennis courts, lighted basketball court and a playground.
We are currently planning a playground renovation at Davis Park. The old playground must be taken down as it no longer meets current national safety codes and ADA regulations. A volunteer committee is working with the Parks and Recreation Department on the design and plan for a new playground, which we intend to make a NATURAL PLAYGROUND. This would offer a different and unique experience that kids can't get at other playgrounds nearby at the school or other places in Shelburne. It will also help give the neighborhood park an aesteically pleasing, landscaped area which will attract users of all ages.
Laplatte Nature Park
Located off Shelburne Falls Road adjacent to the Post Office. Trails are available for walking snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. A trail improvement project completed in 2012 has resulted in a continuous trail linking the north and south ends of the park from the Shelburne Supermarket to Falls Rd. by the bridge. A new Falls Overlook was constructed as a memorial project to Hudson Holland IV and is a serene spot to visit and view the Falls. Community Gardens is also located off La Platte Circle. Parking area is available off of La Platte Circle. Please remember that the Post Office parking lot is for Postal Patrons only. 125.6 Acres
