The Doug-Bay Manor Civic Association has helped to clean up and reopen an overgrown path in Douglaston that now leads to a scenic view of Little Neck Bay.
Civic president Tom Pinto said the trail, located at the corner of 233rd Street and 39th Avenue, had previously been overgrown and filled with litter.
But state Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside, the 111th Precinct and the city’s Parks Department collaborated in a cleanup of the site, which is now accessible to the public.
“The trail leads to great views of Little Neck Bay,” Pinto said.
Avella said the trail had been brought to his attention by the civic last year.
“It was overgrown with brush and there was debris from people hanging out there and illegal dumping,” he said. “Now, it’s a nice little trail to the waterfront.”
