Nearby AARP Community Challenge Grantees

Dover, DE

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2022

Project Category: Bikeability

Description: This project installed three bicycle repair stations along the Capital City Trail and outside the public library.

Claymont, DE

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2018

Project Category: Accessibility of amenities

Description: To allow people of all ages and abilities to walk for exercise, the Claymont Community Center added an outdoor walking path and ramp to its facilities. The new, ADA-accessible walkway leads from the Center's building to its track and fields. Organizers say the pathway will allow more older adults to attend sporting events onside, such as football and baseball games. To make the pathway attractive, volunteers planted flowers. They also installed benches and picnic tables nearby. Organizers plan to add lighting to the walkway in the future, making it easier to traverse after dark.
