The Rockingham Community Foundation awarded the City of Eden a $24,975 grant to create the Freedom Park Nature Trail that
will begin at Country Club Drive, across from Central Elementary School and continue past a historic cemetery, creek and end at the
upper Freedom Park shelter. The grant provides funding for picnic tables and benches. The City plans to add facilities to accommodate
tent and RV campers. The project will begin in June of 2017 and end the fall of 2017.
