Making the Healthy Choice the Easy Choice


Celebrating the Newly Paved Scott Park Trail


In honor of the newly paved Scott Park trail members of Eat Smart Move More Kershaw County, KC Trails, and LiveWell Kershaw held a “Walk with the Mayor” event on Thursday November 14th. Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford explained the value of this trail to the community stating, “when you look at the trail don’t think of it as ‘a strip of asphalt.’ It is much more than that, go big! Think of it as a launch pad for new and exciting opportunities!” Despite the cold and rainy weather those who attended the celebration happily grabbed their umbrellas for their walk while Representative Laurie Funderburk chose to go for a run. Scott Park trail connects to the Sweet Gum trail giving residents an approximate 3-mile loop, all within a natural, safe park environment. This Paving was made possible through seed money from ESMMKC as well as joint partnerships between the community and the City of Camden.
