Today the city of Camden hosts the official ribbon cutting of the Sweet Gum Trail, a walking trail connecting Scott Park to Woodward Park. We are pleased to see this project come to fruition and hope the public will take advantage of this wonderful new amenity. The trail, which is a half mile long, is a 10-foot wide hiker/biker trail, is not only a nice addition to the outdoor amenities available to the citizens of Camden and Kershaw County, is also the first step in a long-term plan to develop a trail system that will ultimately be able to connect many areas in the city and the county.  Conceivably, by connecting the two parks with a trail that can provide access to the sidewalk along DeKalb Street, one can not only connect Scott and Woodward parks to downtown Camden but also to the Wateree River.  

That we all need to get out and enjoy the outdoors is a given.  And we also agree that there is no such thing as too much green space. 

But with amenities such as the Sweet Gum Trail, getting out and enjoying the great outdoors is easy, pleasurable – and free. So, congratulations to all involved in this project! Hopefully, more of these trail connections can be made in the fairly near future.
