An extension to the Charter Doyle Greenway that forms a link between the park and Mooreland Heights Elementary School has been completed.
The ribbon cutting for the 0.3-mile trail extension will be at 3:30 p.m. Friday at the elementary school.
The city of Knoxville's Greenways Service crew built the crushed stone trail in-house. They received on-the-job training through this project from a contracted professional trail builder.
The extension begins by the existing loop greenway in Charter Doyle Park near Martin Mill Pike. It goes through the woods and links to a sidewalk section on Magazine Road.
According to the city, the sidewalk runs from Mooreland Heights Elementary to a residential development within the Colonial Village community.
The new trail extension also links to the grave site of a Revolutionary War veteran. The gravestone reads “Revolutionary Soldier John Doyle 1748-1837.”
Mayor Madeline Rogero, City Council members and city staff will be there to present the new section.
