Come and be a partner to history. Join Groundwork Jacksonville as we celebrate the first mile of the Emerald Trail on Saturday, April 13.
The First Mile Walk will start at 11 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 bike trail. The walk will end at the Engine 15 Brewing Co. Total distance is 1.3 miles. Transportation will be provided from Engine 15 back to the convention center starting at 12:30 pm.
The walk will stop at several locations along the route to explain how the Emerald Trail will be built and what it will look like when finished. Construction of the first mile will begin in early 2020. When completed, the Emerald Trail will consist of a 30-mile greenway walking and bike trail that connects the neighborhoods that ring downtown Jacksonville.
