Derby and Conway Springs are receiving more than $50,000 each to develop community trails, according to a news release from the Sunflower Foundation.
Derby will receive $55,000 for a new one-mile walking trail at Madison Avenue Central Park. A citizen task force has developed plans for the park, which has also been developed as part of a half-cent sales tax that residents approved in 2013.
Conway Springs will receive $52,250 for its first community trail – a half-mile trail that will be built this fall.
The foundation awarded $244,675 in funding to eight organizations across the state for trails in this round of grants.
Never miss a local story.
Over the past 10 years, Sunflower has helped fund more than 125 trails in more than 50 Kansas counties, according to the release.
