Well, the glowing eyes notwithstanding, this Shelton family and their Beagle pup were having a fun time out enjoying the RecPath Sunday. A lot of people and families were enjoying the not-yet-finished Dog Park and the under-construction Shelton Lakes Recreation Path this weekend. There were even people at the Dog Park after I got out of the woods tonight. Maybe Fido & Rover will get headlamps for Christmas.
The contractors are making good progress and doing nice work. They are getting the base in now, and then coming back and installing drainage pipes. Ultimately the surface will be a fine crushed stone to blend in with the landscape, but it will also be bikable, and handicapped-accessible. The alternative route avoids some of the steeper grades next to the Dog Park & gives some nice views of the stream and dam.
People using the Dog Park during the work week just please be aware that this is a work zone and make sure the equipment operators can see you. We want to see everyone enjoy the Shelton Lakes Greenway, but please stay out of their way so they can work safely.
It looks like the big snowstorm blew out to sea, so it will be interesting to see what progress is made next week. The base for this section may be done for Christmas.
