A grand opening event is in the works for the South Chickamauga Creek Greenway, which includes a bridge stretching 190 feet across the South Chickamauga Creek and connecting new sections of the Tennessee Riverwalk. Construction on the project began in May of last year and is scheduled to be complete by spring.
The Trust for Public Land will host a day of family fun on Saturday, April 9 to celebrate the completion of the project. The afternoon event will begin with the South Chick Sunriser 5K race, a standup paddleboard race, a bike parade put on by Art120, live bluegrass music, a community art project, outdoor yoga classes, canoe and kayak rentals, food trucks, children’s activities, and more.
