Royal River Park Improvements Information

Royal River Park was created over a period of time in the 1970s & 1980s and funded by the Town and in part by a series of federal grants.  With a beautiful, paved path running the length of the park along the river and parallel to the heart of the village, Royal River Park is one of Yarmouth’s most beloved and well-used parks.  Most of this park is built on former industrial and mill sites.  Informational signage and exposed brick remnants give park guests a peek in time at the massive site that was once the Forest Paper Company. 

Most recently, Royal River Park’s pathways were repaved and patched to maintain safe transportation and pedestrian opportunities and a small handicapped accessible parking area was created.  Despite these fixes, more upgrades are needed to improve safety.  

Yarmouth Community Services department will be applying for a grant to help the park’s small budget go further while improving as much as possible in one complete project.  The grant, Land and Water Conservation Fund, is a matching program available to municipalities specifically for these reasons.

In order to capture public input on this project, Yarmouth Community Services invites you to participate in the survey and stay tuned for additional public opportunities to view concept plans and steps along the way.  Thank you for getting involved in this important improvement project.
