About Us

Who We Are

The Slate Quarry Park Group, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization made up of business leaders and community members whose mission is to create a privately-funded public park for the community of Poultney, as initially established during workshops undertaken in 2002 by the Rural Development workshops in Poultney and, as identified by Poultney 2020 in 2013 with a Community Conversation.

Our Mission

The Slate Quarry Park group is a 501(c)3 public benefit non-profit corporation. We are a growing group of community members (residents and Slate Quarry owners) who share a collective vision to:



1. Bring the beauty of slate and green space to downtown Poultney.


2. Improve the quality of life within our community.


3. Attract new visitors to downtown businesses.


4. Meet more neighbors!
