Albany-- You'll soon have a new place to take a nature walk and you could see some animals along the way.
Chehaw is almost finished with a walking trail through the center of the park. It will be exactly one mile so that people will know how far they've walked.
The trail is one of several projects the park is paying for with sales tax revenue. They hope new projects will help revitalize Chehaw and attract more visitors.
"People will be able to come out here and get their exercise and enjoy the scenery of the park which is a great combination," says Doug Porter, Executive Director.
Porter says the trail could be ready as soon as Labor Day.
