River Trails receive new name in honor of Bigbee
Wally Bigbee
Dr. Wally Bigbee, pictured by Barren Fork River access from River Trail East, will have the trail named in his honor.
River Trail North and River Trail East will be renamed The Bigbee Trail in honor of Dr. Wally Bigbee. The city Parks and Recreation Committee made that decision one month after accepting the trails as part of its parks system. Bigbee was visibly moved by the announcement and subsequent unanimous vote by committee members Ben Newman, Steve Harvey and Kate Alsbrook.
