The trail leads from Prairie Springs Park to Wilmot Road (County Highway C). During 2013, a culvert was installed at the north end of the trail in order to complete the connection. The path was built with recycled millings from 2011 roadwork in LakeView Corporate Park.

  • Restrooms at the Ball field Pavilion and the Wruck Pavilion (only open during summer season)

The lot will accommodate approximately 387 vehicles and is intended to promote and support carpooling opportunities.
