Oklahoma City recently celebrated the grand opening of its $9.1 million West River Trail with bike rides and a free family festival.
Garver provided the city with a number of surveys, reports, and designs in support of the trail project, which is part of a 10-year construction program called MAPS 3, which is designed to improve the quality of life in Oklahoma City.
“The expansion of our trails system is important to improving our quality of life,” Mayor Mick Cornett said. “Trails make Oklahoma City more livable, improve our economy, preserve our open spaces and encourage physical activity.”
The 7.5-mile multipurpose trail connects Lake Overholser to the south bank of the Oklahoma River and is the first of three MAPS 3 trails to open.
Garver previously worked with MAPS 3 to design the world’s only permanently lit river race course, which you can read about here.
