GREEN, OH – Mayor Gerard Neugebauer invites all residents to join him on Saturday, June 4, National Trails Day, to walk a section of the new Steese Road multi-purpose trail at 10 a.m.
Residents of all ages are invited to meet Mayor Neugebauer just before 10 a.m. in the parking lot of the Green Middle School, 1711 Steese Road. The walk will step off at 10 a.m. and head west along the new Steese Road Multi-purpose trail to its west end at the entrance to Greenwood Drive and back to the middle school. Those who wish to continue on with the mayor to the parking lot of Central Park, 1795 Steese Road, are invited to do so where he will spend a few minutes pointing out the features of Green’s 10th park that is currently under construction.
“I have a real passion for parks and trails and feel they are such an integral park of building a strong community,” said Mayor Gerard Neugebauer. “I look forward to sharing this new feature of our community with residents on June 4.”
The city constructed two multi-purpose trails this spring – the Steese Road multi-purpose trail, which extends from the end of the sidewalk on Steese Road in front of the Intermediate school to Greenwood Drive on the north side of the road, and the Shriver Road multi-purpose trail, which begins at the end of the sidewalk on the east side of Steese Road and runs in front of the Portage Lakes Career Center to King Drive. Both trails are approximately 1/4 –mile in length and connect more than 800 homes to central Green. Total cost for both trails was just over $328,000.
