We need your help! Many of you saw our post earlier about the paint dumped in the water. More vandalism was discovered today. Some of the storywalk boards were shot at, and some of the trail marker signs are being ripped off the trees. Police reports will be filed for the vandalism, and if anyone has any information of who may be involved, please reach out to us or report to PD. www.biddefordmaine.org/FormCenter/Police-Department-7/CRIME-TIP-FOR-THE-BIDDEFORD-POLICE-DEPAR-40
If you see something, say something. Thanks for helping us keep our park safe and clean!
And a big shout out to all of our volunteers who have helped clean up downed trees, spilled paint, and replace the storywalk boards. We couldn't do it without you! ... See MoreSee Less
Silver lining to cleaning up paint in West Brook that runs along the red trail-I found this guy. It’s a fresh water mussel or clam. This is why paint in the stream is so harmful! This might be a Brook Floater, one of the rarest species in Maine! LET'S SHARE THIS POSITIVE POST <3

"As filter-feeders, freshwater mussels provide a vital service to Maine’s lakes, ponds, rivers and streams by removing suspended particles such as algae, bacteria, and detritus from the water column. Because they constantly filter large volumes of water, reside in the benthic substrate, can’t leave their surroundings, and live a long time (more than 100 years for some species!), freshwater mussels are sensitive to contaminants and changes in their environment. Consequently, they are a valuable indicator of water quality and aquatic ecosystem health, but they also are one of the most imperiled groups of animals in the country."
Thank you to the volunteer for cleaning effort 😊

Apex Youth Connection kids form the Trek2Connect program adopted a section of the park that was tagged with graffiti. We spent some time last week removing some and cleaning up illegal fire pits. Our kids use this park frequently and I'm super proud of them to step up to the plate and care for Biddeford's back yard! ... See MoreSee Less

Who ever is in charge of this organization, HOB or FOC, should take note at all the amazing things happening in southern Maine and winter fatbiking. Would love to see some time spent in this park to make it a destination spot for outdoor enthusiasts. ... See MoreSee Less
