GRANVILLE, OHIO (June 30, 2020) The Licking Park District continues to collaborate with our municipal partners in Newark, Heath, Granville, and Johnstown. We recently completed four bike trail paving projects and are working on multiple trail slip repair projects.
Sections of the TJ Evans bike trails in Granville and Johnstown were paved the week of June 22nd. The Licking Park District worked in partnership via agreements to maintain and improve the trail system within the boundaries of the Village of Granville and the Village of Johnstown. In addition, LPD paved over 3 miles of the trail between the two communities. LPD collaborated with the City of Heath to pave a trail near Hoback Park in May of this year via a similar maintenance agreement. LPD is currently working with the City of Newark to address multiple slip repair projects within their jurisdiction.
The Licking Park District continuously monitors and makes improvements to your park system. Your tax levy dollars allow us to maintain and improve the park system.
