It was a very windy day in Ripley today so holding the 200 foot measuring tape and painting the markings on the ground was quite a feat. I was by myself today. But the excitement about the start of construction drawing near was just too much for me to stay away.
The Township has been working on the walkway from Park Street East to the historic Lewis Cemetery and the Pine River Watershed group have been feverishly planting trees along the east side of it. They are small now but with tender loving care, it will grow into a lovely inviting walk as part of the trail system in and around Ripley.
Construction of the Garden walkways is scheduled to start on the site on June 18th. Stay tuned!
