Trailhead Park in Palmyra gets improvements

PFC Charles F. Duel Memorial Trailhead Park, 200 W. Wilson St. in Palmyra, has recently undergone improvements and a designation process. The park is named after a Palmyra resident who lost his life while serving in Vietnam.

The village park is on a half-acre lot and is a gathering place for many outdoor enthusiasts. The park is less than a mile away from the southern Kettle Moraine horse trails and horse rider's campground and just over a mile from The Ice Age Trail.

The park is situated along the local snowmobile route and numerous road bicycle routes. Seasonal parking is also available for snowmobilers at the park.

Through a grant from the Wisconsin Horse Council and cooperation with the Glacial Drumlin Horse Trail Association, a corral for 10 horses was built in 2015. In addition, the picnic tables were refurbished and a new kiosk was installed. The Kettle Moraine Flyers bicycle club also donated an 18 stall bike rack.

Future improvements include the installation of a bubbler and faucet, and the Palmyra American Legion Post 304 plans to supply the site with a memorial rock and a flagpole.
