In 2019, $177,900 was awarded for the purchase and conservation of a 51.7-acre parcel of forested land adjacent to Gloutak Park on Rock Valley Road. In 2021, the Dept. of Conservation partnered with a local nonprofit, Greenagers, and with an additional $47,000 fully built out trails into the parcel for the wider enjoyment of the public. Holyoke youth were trained and employed by Greenagers to accomplish this work.
