This special event for the trail’s initial phase of 3.4 miles took place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14, near Shelters 9 and 10 in Heritage Park, the current primary access point and western terminus for the new trail. The ribbon cutting included light refreshments, giveaways and comments by Johnson County Board of Park & Recreation Commission Chair Paul Snider and other officials.

Most Americans take the water systems that bring clean water to and from their homes and businesses for granted. They turn on the tap and flush the toilet without thinking twice about where that water came from or where it will go.  

But could you imagine a day without water? Without safe, reliable water and wastewater service?
