April 13 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free

Be a partner to history! Join Groundwork Jacksonville on Saturday, April 13, the Opening Day of Trails across the country, as we celebrate the  “First Mile” of the Emerald Trail.

The Emerald Trail First Mile Walk will start at 11:00 a.m. at the Prime Osborn Convention Center, and head north through LaVilla and under Interstate 95 to Myrtle Avenue and the start of the S-Line Rail Trail.  The walk will end at the Engine 15 Brewing Co at approximately 1:00 p.m.

We’ll stop at various locations along the route to explain how the Emerald Trail will be built and what it will look like when finished. When completed, the Emerald Trail will consist of a 30-miles greenways and a walking and biking trail that connects 14 historic neighborhoods to downtown, McCoys Creek, Hogans Creek and the southbank and northbank riverwalks. Construction of the Model Mile will begin in early 2020.

The event is free, but pre-registration is required
