The Blue Springs Parks & Recreation Department will host a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony on Saturday, June 5 for the new trail located in Gregory O. Grounds Park. The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and will be held at the south end of the trail near the park’s parking lot located at 1901 NE Jefferson Street. Additional parking is available on Jefferson Street and at the Dog Park at Gregory O. Grounds Park located at 1049 NE 20th Street.
Immediately after the ceremony will be an informal community bike/walk to help dedicate the new trail. Residents are encouraged to lace up their walking shoes or bring their bikes to help Blue Springs Parks & Recreation kick-off National Trails Day 2010 on June 5.
National Trails Day 2010 focuses on bringing together outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds to celebrate the natural heritage of the United States trail system. Traditionally held each year on the first Saturday in June, National Trails Day was established to recognize the value of recreational trails and the people involved in building and maintaining them.

The trail at Gregory O. Grounds Park is part of phase one of the City-wide bike route and trail systems funded in 2000 and completed in December of 2009. For more information about Blue Springs bike routes and trail systems, visit www.bluespringgov.com/parks.
