The city of Hurricane will soon break ground for a new trail in City Park.
The Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation recently awarded the city about $20,000 in grant money. Those funds will be used to install a new 2,000 linear feet asphalt trail through City Park, Hurricane City Manager Ben Newhouse said.
The trail will be 5 foot wide and take the place of a partial trail inside the park, starting at the top of the ballfield and winding down by the bathrooms. Officials hope to break ground for the new trail in several weeks.
Meanwhile, Walmart also awarded the city a $2,500 grant. Newhouse said that money will be given to the Community Cupboard, located behind Forrest Burdette Memorial United Methodist Church.
Newhouse added that the Community Cupboard has served about 1,000 people this month. Thirteen churches in the area help provide for that food bank.
