RUN STANLEY 5K - 2015

 

Follow this link (http://runstanley.com/) for the "Run Stanley 5K" Website

 

.

*********************

 

 

 

New bridge installed! Since 2013, the Run Stanley 5K has raised funds to replace Stanley Park Wildlife Sanctuary trail bridges damaged and washed away in recent storms. We’re happy to report that a removable floating dock bridge has been installed at the site of the former damaged bridge! The River Trail loop is now accessible from the boardwalk area. Some additional work will be done on the bridge in the next week or so, but it is safe to use, so come check it out! As you explore the River Trail loop, you’ll see the marshy site where a second bridge was washed away.

Please note...if you "Google" Stanley Park you may see that the Park Hours listed are incorrect.

They have listed the office hours (M-F & closed on Saturday & Sunday)

The Park is OPEN 7 DAYS a week (1st Saturday in May through the last Sunday in November) from 7am until dusk (time posted at gates 1 &2)

 

Also make sure your are looking for Stanley Park in Westfield, MA and not our friends @ Stanley Park in Vancouver, CA.

This mistake is made often !!!

Stanley Park has a few rules & regulations to help keep this location as welcome and healthy for all our visitors. Unfortunately, some visitors do not follow these rules. As you can see by the attached collage from just a small section of the Park on March 5, 2014 that the requested courtesy to all patrons is not being followed by several visitors. This is a major health issue and we ask for more cooperation (for the visitors that always take care of this kind of situation, we sincerely thank you). We do provide bags for use and a location for deposit....

Christopher was a longtime employee of Stanley Home Products, both in Westfield and the Easthampton plants. He was the foreman of the Brush Department, and a member of the company's bowling, golf and ping-pong teams. He enjoyed attending get-togethers of the "25-Year Club" and the reunions at Stanley Park where he was honored, this year, as the employee with the most years of service. He was very proud of having served his country in the U.S. Coast Guard during WWII. - See more at: http://obits.masslive.com/obituaries/masslive/obituary.aspx?n=christopher-j-gianchetti&pid=167000969&fhid=25292#fbLoggedOut

We are pleased to announce that "Ozzie" has come home here at Stanley Park. He is now located in the duck pond area in a special place on the island. We sincerely thank everyone who helped us raise the funds for this project, including the very successful "Pennies for Ozzie" campaign. We have installed 24 hour surveillance recording cameras for the safety of all. You can also see live pictures from these cameras by checking our our website (stanleypark.org). Link is on the home page. We would like to give a special "thank you" to Joe Mariani (staff mason) and Jack King (staff carpenter) who helped fix up the island and pedestal areas. This was a complete team project and our thanks to everyone who helped bring this to fruition. If you have questions please call our office anytime 413-568-9312.
