Black Rock to Seaside Park Bike Route

Bike Route Black Rock to Seaside Park

A nearly five-mile long bike route is being created to link Black Rock with Seaside Park.   Work is under way on the route, which begins at Fairfield Avenue and Gilman, runs along the water and through Black Rock to Park Avenue, ending at Seaside Park. “ This route will link two of our city’s most scenic areas, providing a safer area for bicyclists to traverse the city,” said Mayor Bill Finch.

Update on Black Rock

Black Rock will be benefiting from commercial, state, federal, and charitable development money pouring into our small area. The area south of Fairfield Avenue and west of Ellsworth Street has always been the highest value area of Black Rock, but with so much development taking place north of Fairfield Avenue and east of Ellsworth Street, we may actually see a greater rise in value in these areas than the higher priced areas as they have more opportunity for appreciation.
