Cary Park District to build new trail in Lions Park

CARY – Construction on a new 720-foot long trail at Lions Park is set to begin soon, and is expected to be ready in time for the district's annual fireworks display.

The 10-foot wide paved trail will go from Silver Lake Road into the park along the driveway and connect to existing trails, said Park District Executive Director Dan Jones.

As pedestrians enter the park now, they have to walk along the edge of the driveway, Jones said.

"The board wants to provide safer access ... for pedestrians," Jones said.

All Star Asphalt, Inc. of Wheeling, will carry out the project for the park district for $79,000. The district's budget for the project is $108,000.

Work is expected to begin on May 1 and be substantially completed by June 30, in time for the park district's annual summer celebration on July 3, which includes a fireworks diplay at Lions Park.
