New hike and bike trail open to the community

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - There’s a new hike and bike trail in town for those who love the outdoors!

Over the weekend, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place to celebrate the Del Mar Hike and Bike Trail.

The new trail is located at 403 Lindenwood Drive.

The two-way trail is under one mile and a half in length and stretches from Springfield Avenue to Eden Lane.

The estimated cost of the project is about $250,000 which was paid by the district seven priority funds.

The City of Laredo says the trail is part of the city’s comprehensive plan which calls for more investments toward community recreation.
