Salt Springs State Park
This feasibility study in combination with the already existing Salt Springs State Park Resource Management Plan accomplishes the mission of identifying realistic opportunities and constraints for accessibility to Fall Brook Gorge for people with special needs. This provides The Friends of Salt Springs Park, Inc. with the necessary resources to obtain additional funds to implement design. An east side access to the Fall Brook Gorge was identified. This allows visitors the experience of the park's central attractions. Salt Springs State Park consists of well-preserved structures on approximately 400 acres, and contains a tract of old-growth eastern hemlock forest, salt and methane springs, and a series of beautiful waterfalls as Fall Brook flows down the gorge. Design concept emphasizes site sustainability with minimal disturbance to the natural surroundings. Final report describes the use of in-kind services to offset grant funds, and provides additional funding sources for implementation.
