Pardon Our Dust!

Villagers! Please pardon our dust!

The Village is going through an exciting transformation.
We are installing New Pathways to replace the old brick path currently there. Making the Village an even more beautiful and safe place to be. If that is possible

Between August 25 and September 30 contractors will replace the old brick pavers in the Village with new pathways and a new drainage system. These capital improvements, funded by the City of Troy, will enhance accessibility and safety for all of our guests.

DON'T FORGET - Our programs are still running:
