WINONA LAKE — Today, the community of Winona Lake celebrated the official opening of the extension of Heritage Trail of the Lake City Greenway in a ribbon cutting ceremony. This part of the trail is a mile-long section extending from the boardwalk ending at Beta Hall on Grace College’s campus.
Winona Lake town coordinator, Craig Allebach, spoke at the ceremony thanking both the Winona Lake and Warsaw communities for the support they’ve all given. Allebach handed out several plaques for individuals who have time and funds towards the construction of the trails.
President of Grace College, Dr. Bill Katip, Dr. Dane and Mary Louise Miller, and Robert Swanson on behalf of Winona Lake, received plaques for their support in the construction of this trail.
Rich Haddad with the K21 Foundation, who collaborated with community to provide funds to this project, stated he was pleased the community is, “Creating a culture of living in a healthy way.”
The cost of the trail has totaled $1.25 million in the last nine years. This trail gives the community the opportunity to enjoy a paved path through the woods ideal for walking, running and biking.
