YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The City of Youngstown, St. Angela Merici Parish and the Lincoln Park Watch will be working the weekend of October 12 to finish the Lincoln Park Walking Trail on Youngstown's East Side.

According to a press release, the City of Youngstown will be completing this task by using a $20,000 Keep America Beautiful/Lowe's Community Partners grant.

The volunteer workday is scheduled for Saturday, October 13 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Additional volunteers are welcome to help complete the project.

Volunteers should meet at St. Angela Merici Parish, located at 397 S. Jackson Rd. 

Volunteers will be installing items such as gates, park benches, railings, dog waste receptacles, trash cans, and extra lighting, as well as painting the historic Council Rock and Lincoln Park signs at the park's main entrance.

This walking trail will give residents in the neighborhood access to a clean, safe, beautiful area to walk their dogs, get some exercise, and enjoy the beautiful sights of Lincoln Park. We hope this will encourage more outdoor activity and healthier habits for Youngstown residents," said Jennifer Jones, Green Youngstown program coordinator.

"Having the opportunity to work together for the benefit of the community through this the project will result in a healthy and safe place for all Youngstown residents to enjoy the new walking trail", said Dawn Turnage, City of Youngstown Parks and Recreation Director.
