The Town of Leland unveils a new StoryWalk at Westgate Nature Park.

The Town of Leland is excited to unveil a new StoryWalk at Westgate Nature Park. The StoryWalk includes 18 panels along the Westgate Nature Park trail, each featuring a page from a children’s book. Visitors can walk the 0.3-mile trail to read the full story.

This project is designed to encourage movement, reading and creativity. Stories featured on the StoryWalk will be changed each quarter.

The first story is “The Traveling Coin” by local author Kevin Kirk.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and community event to celebrate the grand opening was held on January 14. The ceremony was followed by crafts, face painting and a meet and greet with Kirk.

The StoryWalk is presented by the North Brunswick Kiwanis Club and cosponsored by the Town of Leland and First Bank.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
