POLAND — The Poland Conservation Commission recently received a $2,000 grant from L.L. Bean and a $1,000 grant from Northeast Bank to help fund improvements to Waterhouse Brook Park and build a bridge over the dam across the brook.

The park is a roadside scenic area near the town center. The pedestrian bridge will link up with the 2-mile Waterhouse Brook Trail.

Currently, hikers have to cross Waterhouse Brook via Poland Corner Road across a narrow bridge made unsafe by vehicular traffic. Construction of a pedestrian bridge will provide a safe way for hikers to cross the brook.

Funding for a pedestrian bridge over the dam at Waterhouse Brook Park in Poland got a boost from grants from L.L. Bean and Northeast Bank.
