This year, the Grand Concourse Authority will be responsible for the maintenance of more than 70 different trails, parks and open spaces within our member municipalities.

A 10-person maintenance team conducts walk and open space maintenance from May to November with activities ranging from routine garbage collection to larger structural repairs. Hours of operation are from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Saturday during the walking season. In the off-season a reduced staff conducts litter and debris control and walkway winter grooming on selected routes.

So be on the look out this year for our Grand Concourse Mules and Gators (ATV's) and our friendly uniformed maintenance staff!
