BREC Zachary Community Park/Americana Trail Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Community Walk
Posted by zachary on April 05, 2023
Join us for the BREC Zachary Community Park/Americana Trail Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Community Walk on Saturday, April 15, @ 9 a.m. Walk the beautiful .66-mile easy-to-walk nature trail at BREC Zachary Community Park, 20055 Old Scenic Hwy. The BREC trail connects the Zachary Community Park to the Americana subdivision, featuring wooden bridges and limestone pathways. The dual ownership trail is the first in a series of walking trails in the area funded through BREC and the Americana Economic Development District, a taxing mechanism financed from a one-cent sales tax throughout the district.
Along the walk, naturalists with BREC’s Conservation Department will host numerous educational stations where participants can learn about plants, insects, and other critters that live outdoors. In addition, BREC will host FREE family-fun games for children of all ages. The City of Zachary will sponsor a “Make your own trail mix” Station and give 75 clear backpacks to the first participating walkers.
