New StoryWalk Coming to Westgate Nature Park

The Town of Leland is excited to unveil a new StoryWalk at Westgate Nature Park, located at 1260 West Gate Drive.

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 and community event to celebrate the grand opening will be held on Jan. 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Westgate Nature Park. The ribbon cutting will be followed by crafts, face painting, and a meet and greet with Kirk.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking at Westgate Nature Park is limited. A free shuttle will be running from the Leland Cultural Arts Center, located at 1212 Magnolia Village Way.

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, VT, and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
