Triplet Park is a sweet memorial to three children who died in a fire. Mown grassy trails wind around the pocket park, which also has a garden and a bird feeder in the shape of a wooden toy train.
At the backend of Triplet Park, you’ll see an old boardwalk headed through forest that takes you to a municipal-looking building, I believe it’s the Unity Food Hub. To your right you should see a sign for the 1-mile or Bartlett Shore Trail, built and maintained by Unity Barn Raisers. Cross another boardwalk, and in about .1 mile you’ll come to a snowmobile trail. Take a right here, and follow the trail to the shore of Unity Pond. You’ll cross two country roads (Kanokolus and Marina roads), as well as pass along the side of a grassy field and Pond Cemetery.
When you get close to the pond, the road diverges. Both legs take you to the small sandy beach.
Directions: To access Triplet Park, you can park Unity Community Center off of Route 139. Cross 139 and walk up the small Wood Lane to access the park. You can also park at the other end of Bartlett Shores Trail, at a small lot near Unity Pond.
