The city of Conyers, Rockdale County Public Schools and the PATH Foundation will host a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the latest phase of the Conyers Olde Town Trail on Thursday, Oct. 19, 5:30 p.m. The ceremony will be held in the parking lot of the Nancy Guinn Memorial Library, 864 Green Street, Conyers.
Mayor Randy Mills, Conyers City Council members, Rockdale County Public Schools school board members and PATH officials will officially open the $1.7 million SPLOST and PATH-funded project, which stretches nearly 1.57 miles connecting the Nancy Guinn Library to Pine Log Park. Construction of this phase of the Olde Town Trail began in November 2016.
Another community partner, the East Metro Board of Realtors, recently contributed $2,100 toward benches installed along the new phase of the trail.
“We encourage the public to come join in this celebration as we open this multi-use trail for walking, jogging, rollerblading, cycling and anything that gets people out of the house exercising and enjoying the outdoors,” said Mayor Mills.
Following brief remarks and the ribbon cutting, the path will be open for the public to enjoy. Those who attend are encouraged to bring bicycles, running shoes and pets (on leashes) to enjoy the new PATH trail extension.
