Cumberland Valley Appalachian Trail Club

| Children’s Lake Bench Replacement |

In collaboration with the Boiling Springs Civic Association and local businesses, the Cumberland Valley Appalachian Trail Club spearheaded a project to replace deteriorating concrete and wooden benches around Children’s Lake in the village of Boiling Springs. Children’s Lake is the centerpiece of the village, and is a popular community and tourist attraction for hikers, fishermen, and families. The newly installed benches reflect the historic iron industry, and provide ample seating space from which to enjoy the ample natural and cultural resources of Boiling Springs, a gateway into the South Mountain landscape.
