miles total, including various sidepaths
town's extensive greenway system connects all major parks, including
the skate park and the popular Splash Island water park, an outdoor
amphitheater, and several new perimeter developments. Interesting
bridges and other details lend a healthy sense of place and adventure.

give trail users their own space. A rescued historic iron truss bridge
connects the White Lick Creek Trail to Friendship Gardens.
