Citizen initiatives help improve the quality of life in Topsfield. Below are current projects undertaken by community groups on Town property. These projects are funded by private donations and volunteer labor.
Topsfield Linear Common
The Topsfield Rail Trail Committee and Friends of Topsfield Trails have spent countless hours planning, fund-raising, and doing the hard physical labor to create the Topsfield Linear Common - the Topsfield Rail Trail - at no cost to the taxpayers of Topsfield. To learn of their successes and the progress of the construction of the Rail Trail, please visit TopsfieldTrail.org.
South Main Street Walking Path
The Topsfield Main Street Foundation in conjunction with many Town boards, committees and community groups installed a stone dust walking path along South Main Street from Maple Street to Salem Road. The poison ivy was removed, the area graded, and the stone wall rebuilt in its original rustic form. This project provides a safe walking area along South Main Street. With the beautification efforts in the public right of way and on abutting properties, this project complements the Welcome to Topsfield sign at the corner of Route 1 and South Main Street and makes a primary access to Topsfield's center more inviting and attractive.
Veterans' Memorial Triangle
The Topsfield Main Street Foundation and the Park and Cemetery Department honor our veterans with this project that will bring together in one place the monuments commemorating Topsfield's veterans' service to our country. The monument remembering veterans of both World Wars has been moved to the to theTriangle and placed opposite a new stone on which a Vietnam War memorial plaque will be installed. Landscaping will be completed in time for a dedication ceremony in November of 2009.
A new non-profit organization dedicated to providing fun, safe, inviting areas for children to play and for the community to gather. To learn more about the Proctor School Playground and the adjacent Community Park (currently the Tot Lot), please visit TopsfieldPlaygroundCommittee.org.
