Furman Park walking trail opens next week

DOWNEY – Furman Park’s new walking trail will officially open Saturday, Nov. 1, after a dedication ceremony that begins at 10:30 a.m. The public is invited to the dedication, which will include arts and crafts for kids, information booths, giveaways, and a dedication walk.

Immediately following the dedication, city officials will hold a groundbreaking at Apollo Park for that park’s new walking trail.

The groundbreaking begins at 12:15 p.m. and is also open to the public.

The new walking trails at Furman and Apollo parks were made possible through a $600,000 grant from the Los Angeles County Regional Park & Open Space District.

New fitness equipment will also be installed near the trails for the public to use.
