The Elizabeth River Trail (ERT) and Rails-to-Trails Conservancy hosted the National Celebrate Trails Day 2022 

at Water Street Open Space on Saturday, April 23rd.

Encompassed in the day was a ribbon cutting to officially open the space as a new trailhead in which City officials, the Executive Director of ERT, and council members rendered welcoming and project focused remarks. Other features of the day included family-friendly activities to include yoga, bounce workout, demonstrations, a poetry hour, and community partnership tables. In addition, the Department of Environmental Quality was represented and was able to visit the space for the first time since construction was completed in Fall 2021.
