Downtown Association Adds to Rivers Edge Trail

Posted: Updated:

For many years the Rivers Edge Trail has been a mainstay here in Montana.

"Well the Rivers Edge Trail is about 50 miles of trails that runs from Sulfur Springs all the way up to Warden Park part of it is an accessible facility and that's what we are standing on right now," explains Doug Wicks of Great Falls Park and Rec. department.

The Downtown Great Falls Association is adding to the trail itself by giving the tip money collected of $858.18 to help pave a new section of path for folks to travel on. 

"We're out here because the Alive at 5 committee designated the Rivers Edge Trail to receive the tip jar money from all the Alive at 5 events this last summer," says Martin Fleck of the Downtown Association.

With groups giving to the Rivers Edge Trail, trail officials can work their way up to making the trail bigger and better every year.

"One of the things we are working towards to try to connect the trail to downtown there is several areas that have been sort of available but never really formalized and so that's one of the things we are working on so far and this donation from the Downtown Great Falls Association really helps us accomplish that," says Wicks. According to MartinFleck the Alive at 5's will continue to support the city of Great Falls.

"We love to put on the Alive at 5's and we like the way people come down and really enjoy the outdoor music in the summer here in Great Falls. It's really fun to come downtown and hang out in the park or maybe in the street and enjoying the Alive at 5 out door concerts," adds Fleck.
