People in Paso Robles have a new way to enjoy the outdoors.
Saturday was the grand opening of the Salinas River trail. A ribbon cutting and community walk were held to dedicate the new trail, and a new river sculpture was also unveiled.
A number of community officials came out in support of today's event.
"Now people can walk, jog, ride bicycles. They can recreate along this new pathway," said Duane Picanco, the Mayor of Paso Robles.
Picanco says the funding for the project came entirely from grants, and none of the city's general fund was used.
He also says the new trail makes it safer for people to walk around the South River Road area. Before the trail existed, people were forced to walk on the narrow street to get to that area.
