Parks and Recreation Director Joel Sherrill and Mayor Ken Sunseri stand on a set of stairs on the Rocky Ravine Park trail that has remained open, Sept. 16. Replacing these stairs, as well as those on the closed trail, will be among the improvements made if Haleyville receives an ADECA Recreational Trails Program grant.
HALEYVILLE - Rocky Ravine is a beautiful green space near the heart of Haleyville, but the state of its trails has kept some residents from enjoying its splendor.
Now, the trails at Rocky Ravine Park, one of which has been closed for years, and a trail leading into the ravine from City Lake may soon see improvements if the city of Haleyville receives an Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs' Recreational Trails Program grant for which it has applied.
WINSTON COUNTY - A new program focused on improving outdoor recreation to make North Alabama “a recreation destination” has been formed by the Alabama Mountains, Rivers and Valleys Resource Conservation and Development Council. The new program, NATR, which stands for North Alabama Trails & Recreation, will partner with organizations and individuals in eighteen counties, including Winston.
