George Rec Trail
The George Recreational Trail is one example of the many activities in the George area. The 3.97 mile trail was completed in 2009. You may access the trail from every direction in George and encircle the entire community ending up where you began. This concrete path is suitable for walking, rollerblading or bicycling.
You can experience the enjoyment of the trail that will take you along the east and north edge of George, to Locker Park and around the pond, following on along the Rio Grande Creek to the south portion of the city limits where you will hear the harmony of the wheels meeting the pavement as you cross under the bridge next to the Little Rock River. Through the frog ponds you will be serenaded by a choir of frogs. As you travel this scenic route, you can rest at any of the 38 benches placed by families of loved ones. Or you can read over 225 plaques that have been placed in 8’x8’ concrete sections. These square sections are sold for $200 each and are reminders of those interested in the project and the community. If you are interested in purchasing a square or a bench, you may call the George City Office at 712-475-3612 or e-mailing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can see for generations out, a number of people walking, biking, and moving their way towards better health on the trail. We see women, men, and spouses sauntering down the path, sharing stories, secrets and dreams as they sort out their life and put meaning into it. We see teenagers in love, whispering promises of a shared future…we see little boys and girls on bikes, trikes and skates..whisking along in front of tired parents trying to keep up… we see middle-aged folks walking their dogs and sorting through the multiple priorities that face them. And we see the lonely widow/widower who walks along the way wrapped in memories of an easier time. Just like trees give witness to lives, so do paths.
