A new bench has been installed in the Countryside Preserve...

The bench is located in the south-east quadrant of the Preserve and offers wonderful views to the west across a meadow and to Observation Hill. The bench is located between post 6 and 7.

The bench was gifted to the Township by a resident who made the donation using the Bench and Tree Dedication program. 

A frequent trail walker, the resident felt that providing a quiet place to sit, rest and admire the view was a contribution she wanted to make to the community. An inscription on the bench reminds visitors that “Now and then it is good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be HAPPY”. The tranquil setting and the view certainly make the bench worthy of a visit.
