For The Stake of the trail
Now is our chance to make this trail a reality!
As shown by survey after survey, creating an off-road riverfront trail has been a top priority of citizens in our region for decades. With the help of many, ARP recently purchase a 1.5 mile trail easement.
This represents the largest single opportunity to add an off-road riverfront trail in over 40 years!
This project alone will not fund the construction of the trail!
(As a rule of thumb, trails costs $250,000 per quarter mile to install.)
What this project will do is visibly demonstrate just how important this trail is to larger funders, government leaders and the remaining riverfront land owners between ARP and the City . We will continue our work to inspire a spirit of collaboration and creativity that will get the entire trail completed!
Where can I get the stakes?
They can be picked up at Allegheny RiverTrail Park or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate pick up.
When and where will they be installed?
Our goal is to have the stakes installed by the end of the year. The stakes will map out the location of our proposed trail.
How do I get the stakes back to you?
Please drop them off at the park!
I have a school group, community organization, etc. that would like to be part of this. Can I get special pricing so that everyone can participate?
Yes! It’s very important to us that this project represent everyone in our community. After we prime it for decorating, each stake costs us roughly $2.
