Work began this past week on a new walking trail at Fordyce City Park on College Street. The city received a $192,000.00 recreational trails grant to construct the trail. The funding is 80-20, with the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department providing 80 percent of the money and 20 percent is paid by the city from the civic center budget.

The estimated time of construction for the new trail is 60 days. The trail will begin in the parking area near the playground area, travel behind the baseball field past the gazebo to near the tennis courts. When complete it will be Fordyce's second walking trail, with the other located at the civic center complex.
