It's official--the Hurricane Creek Greenway in La Vergne, Tennessee is now open. This weekend's partly cloudy weather with temps in the mid 80s is perfect for a stroll down this beautiful nature setting.
The ribbon cutting took place at 9:00 o'clock Saturday (8/25/2018) morning. La Vergne Mayor Dennis Waldron welcomed the public to the celebration along with La Vergne Parks Director A.C. Davis, Alderman and Greenway Advisory Committee Chairman Jason Cole, Aldermen Calvin Jones and Melisa Brown, Rep. Mike Sparks and State Senator Bill Ketron. Representative Dawn White is no longer able to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony.
After the opening ceremony, the public participated in the "Tour the Greenway 5K." This free, untimed event, gave residents an opportunity to check out the greenway trail.
Participants were given the special "3.1" decal stickers, and as they neared the halfway point, there was live music, food, family fun including lawn games, water and snacks.
La Vergne Mayor Waldron noted, "This greenway has been over a decade in the making." And then the crowd of citizens proceeded down the Hurricane Creek Greenway with the excitement of having been invited to have a role in a classic motion picture.
