The town of Deep River has received a $5,000 funding boost towards local trail enhancement from the Frank Cowan Company’s “Home Town” program.

In a media release, Cowan said Deep River is home to an extensive network of connected trails popular for a variety of outdoor activities.

To encourage new and continued usage, project funding will assist with improved safety and enhanced user experience with new trail signage and updated mobile accessibility compatible with Google Maps.

“Trail systems not only provide recreational space for residents and visitors, they connect a community,” said Larry Ryan, president of the Frank Cowan Company.

“We applaud the town of Deep River for their commitment to improving their popular trail network. We are happy to support this project and hope these enhancements will encourage use of the trail.”

Mayor Suzanne D’Eon said the town “would like to express council’s sincere gratitude to the Frank Cowan Company and the Cowan Foundation for their generous contribution to the improvement of the town of Deep River’s forest trail network.”
