University Park Walking Tour
University Park has designed a self-guided walking tour of the town, made available at the time of the 75th anniversary of the town on October 9th 2011. After the celebration the printed brochures will be available at Town Hall and we will use this web page to post more information on the sites of the tour.
Download this printable PDF version of the brochure (in English and in Spanish) that you can print yourself if needed.
