MARLBOROUGH – The floating boardwalk on Lake Williams is complete.

On Dec. 19, several of Marlborough’s community leaders gathered on the shores of Lake Williams to celebrate the completion of its floating boardwalk.

“I would like to thank our federal delegation for securing the American Rescue Plan Act. This funding enabled us to expand on a recreational trail along the lake for residents of all ages to enjoy. We are excited for residents to use this unique path to explore Lake Williams and the surrounding area,” Mayor Arthur Vigeant said in an official statement.

The boardwalk was funded with $1.9 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.
The new boardwalk, installed by EZ Docks, spans over 3,000 feet in length. Marlborough had been looking at creating walking trails around Lake Williams for over 12 years, but regulatory and design challenges made constructing the trails difficult.

The new boardwalk connects the lake with existing trails.

“The floating boardwalk at Lake Williams will close the walking loop and create yet another opportunity for families to get outside to enjoy all Marlborough has to offer… These types of tangible benefits for the community are exactly what I had in mind when I voted for the American Rescue Plan,” said Congresswoman Lori Trahan.

She added, “I’m grateful to Mayor Vigeant and the City Council for prioritizing this project, and I look forward to the work ahead to deliver additional federal funds to the city of Marlborough.”
