Partners for Active Living has supported the implementation and improvement of the Mary Black Foundation Rail Trail since it opened in 2006. When we surveyed trail users, we heard that the stretch of trail between Forest Avenue and Country Club Road was a bit uncomfortable because of the thick vegetation. In order to improve this section, PAL facilitated a lease agreement of seven acres of undeveloped land owned by Duke Energy. The City of Spartanburg currently holds the lease that allows the space to become community recreational space.

Mary Black Foundation provided a grant to PAL to hire Design Works LC. One of their principles, Christophe Drumain, came up with a beautiful conceptual plan.
