What is the Centennial Link Trail?
If you live in or around Centennial, you may have heard of the Centennial Link Trail project. This is just another way that the city is attempting to bring more outdoor amenities to residents of the region.
The City of Centennial has joined forces with the South Suburban Park Foundation to create and build a trial that will link the current regional trail network to many neighborhoods throughout the city.
The South Suburban Park Foundation is moving through the project quickly and efficiently, already completing the construction of phase one which links University Boulevard to High Line Canal Trail.
Phase two is next. This part of the project will lead to the joining of the trail to the Holly Open Space.
How much will it Cost Residents?
Like most, you are probably interested in how much money this is costing local residents. While this is a major concern to many, it is good to know that the City of Centennial thought about this well in advance.
With the help of the South Suburban Park Foundation, the city was able to obtain three grants for the project. This includes: $200,6000 from Arapahoe County, $250,000 from Arapahoe County, and $188,350 from the State Trails program. In other words, the people of Centennial benefit from the update without having to worry about the financial implications.
Once complete, the Centennial Link Trail is sure to be one of the best of its kind in the entire state. Add this to other amenities, such as Centennial Center Park, and it is easy to see why outdoor-lovers are flocking to this city.
