City gets OK to expand walking trail
River Trail East, pictured above, was complete in October. The city has finalized an agreement that will allow for the completion of River Trail North. The two trails combined will connect Rocket Park to Sallys Alley.
McMinnville officials have secured a lease on property to continue a walking trail along the Barren Fork River.“We resolved the final wording in the agreement,” said city attorney Tim Pirtle.Approximately four years ago, construction of a trail that would eventually connect Sally’s Alley to Rocket Park began. A section, called River Trail East that connects Ramsey Park to Beersheba Street Bridge, was complete in October 2016. Work on the second and final section, called River Trail North, started recently.
