First Tennessee Foundation Grant Supports G & O Trail

Legacy Parks received a $2,500 grant from the First Tennessee Foundation to help with the planning and design of the G & O Rail with Trail project.

Gulf & Ohio Railway granted the easement that allows the trail to be constructed along the working rail line. A survey and preliminary concept are complete. The next phase of the project calls for enlisting the service of a nationally recognized trail designer to plan, cost, and phase the project so that funding can be secured. The First Tennessee Foundation grant will be used for this designer.
