A new $200,000 trail at Main City Park in Live Oak opened May 22.

City officials and partners met at the new trail for a ribbon-cutting dedication. The trail connects Main City Park to the Live Oak Swimming Pool, located at 7901 Shin Oak Drive, Live Oak.

City Manager Glen Martel said the new trail comes with new benches and a watering station, which includes a dog watering station.

With the new edition, residents can walk from the new trail, around Northeast Lakeview College and around Live Oak Lake for nearly 4 miles of trails in Main City Park, Martel said.

Mayor Mary Dennis said the new trail is an exciting addition to the park, and she looks forward to additional planned projects for city parks.

“I think our parks and our systems are very important to the health and the well-being of all of our residents,” she said.
