A super group of people like you helped make it possible for outdoor adventurers like me to ride the Accessibility Trail here in Mt. Tom State Reservation, Holyoke, MA. Thanks to people like you a smooth and fun-to-ride trail now extends along Lake Bray to the new 55 foot bridge behind me that they built. I’d love to be able to chair-ride with friends all the way around Lake Bray. With help from you and your friends, me and mine, we can make it happen. Want to know more? E-mail me at

Whiting Street Reservoir

WhitingWhiting Street Reservoir was a farsighted venture in 1888, and was built using horse drawn dump-carts and human muscle power. It served as a Holyoke drinking water supply until the mid 1980’s. Whiting and its watershed are an integral part of Mount Tom’s ecosystem and should remain protected from development. In the future its drinking water will likely be in demand here in Holyoke as well as by other communities.
