Community Celebrates Walking Trail Upgrades at Jackson Park

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

On Monday, November 19, YNDC, 7th Ward Councilwoman Basia Adamczazk, Seventh Ward Citizens Coalition President John R. Swierz, City of Youngstown Park Director Dawn Turnage, and neighborhod residents participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony, unveiling the newly paved quarter-mile walking trail at Jackson Park. The walking trail at Jackson Park in the Powerstown neighborhood had deteriorated significantly and was not accessible to residents wishing to use it.  With funding from the Youngstown Foundation Hine Fund, the trail was paved to provide a smooth, accessible surface for walking.  The trail is also fully accessible for individuals with disabilities. Thank you to the Youngstown Foundation Hine Fund and all partners who made this project possible!
