Glendale is set to get two new trails at a 27-acre park nestled in the San Rafael Hills by the end of the year after the City Council unanimously approved the project last week.
A .75-mile decomposed granite trail is scheduled to be constructed around the existing soccer fields, while a 1.7-mile trail is planned to circle through the hills above the Glendale Sports Complex at 2200 Fern Lane. The roughly $286,000 project is being paid for with state grants. The trails will be maintained by volunteers, according to the city.
The shorter trail will be handicap-accessible, said City Manager Scott Ochoa.
Work on the project is expected to begin in September and take roughly four months to complete.
