Chehaw hopes to build trail soon

March 13, 2006

Albany-- The Parks at Chehaw wants to use a trail to promote a healthy South Georgia but they need some money.

Chehaw leaders plan to build a one mile trail for walking and biking at the park. It would eventually be a series of trails that would connect to expanding downtown Riverfront trail. The Chehaw project would cost about $150,000.

The park hopes to get help from citizens, the city and businesses.

"Hospitals maybe and other health professionals that would like to promote healthy lifestyles. We think this is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and develop this kind of trail system out here," says Executive Director Doug Porter.

The park does have some sales tax money designated for park trails. They hope to have the one-mile trail ready by early summer.
