Police will be able to keep a closer watch on a popular destination for fun and fitness in the city of Niles.

City Council is buying a camera that will be installed at the Niles Greenway Bike Path trailhead located along Church Street off East State Street.

Police Captain John Marshall tells 21 News that the camera will enable authorities to monitor the pavilion, restrooms, and parking areas.

The company that sells the cameras says they can record details including license plate numbers.

Marshall expects the camera to be installed soon.

The paved trail runs along an old railroad bed from the Church Street trailhead and follows a rail right of way out of the city, through Weathersfield Township, and ends at the county line where the Mill Creek Metro Parks Bikeway begins.
