Lake Wales, Fla. (Feb. 2, 2022) – The City of Lake Wales Commission approved an agreement with Cobb Site Development, Inc. to perform the construction of the city’s new Park Avenue Connector Trail.
The trail will connect Lake Wailes Park with the historic downtown district at Scenic Highway and East Crystal Ave.
“This is an exciting addition to the Lake Wales trail system,” said Michael Manning, Assistant to the City Manager. “The trail will provide residents and visitors a convenient connection to the historic downtown district from one of our most frequented parks,” Manning noted.
The construction of the 3,000 foot multi-use trail is anticipated to start this spring. Plans include narrowing Park Ave. and closing a section of Third Street to accommodate the trail. Parallel parking will be added to Park Ave.
The Park Avenue Connector Trail is the city’s first step in establishing a network of trails linking residents to parks and area establishments.
