Trails grant

The Glengarry News - - News - BY STEVEN WAR­BUR­TON News Staff

The Friends of the Glen­garry Trails As­so­ci­a­tion has re­ceived $84,000 from the On­tario Tril­lium Foun­da­tion to beau­tify and up­grade a por­tion of the trail sys­tem.

The funds will be used to re­con­struct the 460-foot long Lochiel Street board­walk, up­grade the board­walk and trails so that they are wheel­chair ac­ces­si­ble and even in­stall a sto­ry­board fea­ture on the trail.

The sto­ry­board will be a joint col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the Glen­garry Artists Col­lec­tive and En­core. It will con­sist of ten pan­els placed at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals along the trail. Each panel will con­tain part of a story. Sto­ries will ap­peal to chil­dren and will likely be fic­tion, but with a lo­cal theme. The sto­ries can also be changed through­out the year so there may be a dif­fer­ent story for ev­ery sea­son. The project must be com­pleted by May of 2020.
