NORWICH — The Greenway Conservancy, a local community group hoping to purchase the stone quarry in Norwich and open it to the public soon, was joined by local business volunteers last week to clean up the future park.

The conservancy began working to buy the property in March and have been working on cleaning up and maintaining the trails, and improving access for the public.

“The stone quarry property has long been a popular outdoor recreation destination for residents around Norwich as well as an important aesthetic resource that provides a scenic backdrop to the City of Norwich and a spectacular view of the city from the quarry face,” said Conservancy volunteer Sharon Pelosi. “The Guinn and Quincy family have owned the property for many years and allowed it to be used for recreation on an informal basis.”

Priscilla Nicotra, daughter of the late Anna Mae Quincy said, “The Guinn/Quincy families have always enjoyed the beauty of this land and we are hopeful that some day in the near future this property will be considered a public park for all to enjoy.”
