Working on the walking trail

Sunday, October 27, 2019 by The Press in School

The four Northwestern townships are working on the walking trail at the Northwestern Recreation Community Commission Community Park fields. The base is dug 8-inches deep by 6-feet wide. Stones are spread and will be rolled. A road has to be widened because the trail will run parallel and a parking lot will be enlarged. Kuhns and Anthony will pave the trail to a depth of 3 inches, and the townships will pave the parking lot. Grants have been received from the Department of Community and Economic Development and Nestle Waters.
