Trails and Coastal Access

Trails and greenways provide many benefits to people and the environment. K+F has participated in the planning and design of several unique projects in the southern New England region. Trails can help to justify open space preservation and acquisition while providing active transportation, recreation, and wildlife corridors within the same space. Our urban trail projects incorporate placemaking elements that guide visitors to waterfront access, cultural points of interest, and local businesses. Some trails can be controversial in the planning stage but once implemented, they typically become one of the most appreciated public amenities a community or state can provide.
