City receives two grants for new walking trail
Sweet Gum Trail
One end of the Sweet Gum Trail on the northeast side of Woodward Park where a road dead ends into a dirt track the county cleared several years ago. The trail will be part of a hike/bike trail connecting Scott and Woodward parks. Work on the trail is expected to start as early as this fall, thanks to two grants totaling $125,000. The citys ultimate goal is to connect various parks and other areas in the city and Kershaw County. - photo by Jim Tatum
Thanks to two recent grants, the city of Camden is adding $125,000 to funds already set aside for a new walking trail. The city recently received a $100,000 Recreational Trails Program grant and a $25,000 Parks and Recreational Development (PARD) grant, according to City Planner Shawn Putnam. These funds will be used to help pay for the first section of the Sweet Gum Trail, a hike/bike trail which will connect Woodward and Scott parks.
