Amazon Trail Reconstruction

The North Amazon Running Trail has reopened following a fall facelift. 

Hiding under a fresh cover of bark is the new rock base that will provide long-term stability. Improved drainage will prevent erosion for year-round use.

Additional improvements based on community feedback included updated lighting throughout the entire trail and a new shelter. Habitat-sensitive lighting was installed between the forested area and the creek. The lighting will be turned on Tuesday, November 24. New distance markers will be installed this winter.

Funding for this project comes from the 2018 Parks and Recreation Bond ($750,000) and system development charges ($785,000). Thank you, voters!
