Join Shocker Neighborhood Coalition at ceremony for activation of Redbud Trail

Members of the Shocker and local community are invited to the City of Wichita’s weekly briefing at 10:45 a.m. Thursday, May 19 at the Redbud Trail head at Oliver and 17th Street to celebrate the project. The event will celebrate the new signage at the Redbud Trail walk and bike trail, which is part of the Redbud Trail Activation project. The signage was funded by Wesley Healthcare.

The Redbud Trail Activation project is a collaboration between Wesley Healthcare, Bike Walk Wichita, Wichita State University’s Office of Engagement, and the City of Wichita, through the Atwater Neighborhood Resource Center, to increase utilization of the Redbud Trail and to provide healthy opportunities for the university community and neighbors to get active and build relationships.

The wayfinding signs, etiquette signs and mile markers were designed and installed to help residents find connections to nearby services and businesses and to assist emergency services in locating people on the path.
