On April 22nd, the Anne Springs Close Greenway celebrated 25 years of conservation, education and creating healthy communities through outdoor recreation. As Anne Springs Close reflects on the opening of the Greenway all those years ago, she remarks that if you walk deep into the trails today, it is almost as if you have traveled back in time before the development in our region took off. Close your eyes when you’re out exploring the Greenway, and your senses come alive and are enveloped with nature all around you.
The world as we know it today is immeasurably different than the weeks and days passed. Stay-at-home orders, staggering declines in businesses small and large, and an invisible enemy have turned life upside down for our community. But when we simply close our eyes, we can transport ourselves to a place that connects us and brings us peace and comfort - - time spent in the great outdoors.
