In July 2001, the AU Concessions Board provided a generous grant of $100,000 to fund the construction of the Ag Heritage Park Trail System.
The goal of the trail will be to serve the recreational needs of the campus community; provide recreational access to historic areas on campus by connecting Ag Hill, the President’s Home, Memorial Gardens, the Arboretum and Vinery, the Old Rotation, the Athletic Museum and the Art Museum. The trail will be developed to provide handicap access while providing a prime area for a walking/workout path. The path will be well-lighted and will include public access to benches and picnic areas.
Preliminary plans for the trail offer one to two miles of walking trails creatively dipped and tucked along with straightaways, crests and dales to provide a stimulating and enjoyable walking course.
