Cayce announces TRACK Trail grand opening



 

 

The City of Cayce has announced elected officials officially cut the ribbon for the new TRACK Trail Grand Opening on May 15.

This new TRACK Trail offers visitors a series of self-guided activity brochures that turn an ordinary hike into a fun-filled, discover-packed adventure. The trail’s Types of Trees activity helps children learn about the different varieties of oak, maple, and pine trees found along the trail. The Birds of the Woods and Wetlands activity provides participants with identification information for some of the park’s popular bird species.

“With each of our TRACK Trails, we hope to engage children in the joys of outdoor exploration,” said Jason Urroz, director for Kids in Parks. “Our ultimate goal is to help families fall in love with nature, allowing them realize the value our parks and public lands hold for their lives.”

“The City of Cayce is grateful to Kids in Parks for selecting our prized Riverwalk as a site for this cool, educational, and healthy opportunity. We look forward to watching the public enjoy it for years to come,” said Cayce City Manager Tracy Hegler.

Kids who participate in the program can register their TRACK Trail adventures at KidsinParks.com to earn a series of prizes designed to make their next outdoor adventure even more fun and meaningful. Since the program’s inception, more than a million TRACK Trail adventures have been completed by kids.

Girls on the Run, a national after-school program that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident, using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running, participated in the grand opening. D.O.V.E.S., which stands for Developing Original, Vibrant, Educated, Sisters, also attended. The organization works to promote and empower girls through education and self-discovery.
