Trails, Warden’s Fundraiser discussed at Lanark County Council
Lanark County council received an update on the status of the region’s trails at Wednesday night’s economic development committee from CAO Kurt Greaves.
Greaves announced that the Alameda Project, located on the Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail at the southern entrance to Almonte will have its grand opening on Saturday September 12.
Trees have been planted on both sides of the trail and their canopies will eventually grow to create a green living tunnel effect providing a cool peaceful and reflective place on warm summer days.
On the same day and at the same place, County Warden Brian Campbell will host the inaugural ‘Slow Roll for the United Way’, a leisurely cycle ride from Almonte to Carleton Place.
Registration will open at 10 am and the roll starts at 11. The entrance fee is $20 per rider and children 10 and under can join for free.
A BBQ lunch will be served at the Carleton Junction in Carleton Place to wrap things up and all proceeds will go to the United Way.
