Ice skating path could be coming to the Greenway Trail
GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) - Turning the Greenway into a Freeze way.
One man has a vision for the Greenway Trail, and a way to get people outside and active during the winter months.
The man behind the idea received a 141,000-dollar grant from the Knight Cities Challenge to develop an ice skating path along a section of the Greenway Trail.
Nick Jensen says he hopes to begin with a trial run this winter, that will be about a third-of-a-mile long.
If it's a success, they hope to make the path up to 2 miles long in the future.
We asked some of you if you'd take advantage of the Freeze way and got mixed responses.
To make it a reality, Jensen says he has to work out a plan with the city and park district.
He says he's doing that now.
