Possibility of new park in Logan

LOGAN – A new park and extension of the Logan City Trail may be in Logan’s future before long. Parks and Recreation Director Russ Akina says a private landowner approached the city about selling a 20-acre parcel of his property located at 1500 South and 1600 West. This area is already developed for recreational use.

“He thought that it would be a great idea to be able to extend the trail that our crews are working on and bring it over to his property. So we went out and visited his site and got to meet the property owner and we fell in love with it,” said Akina.  

On KVNU’s For the People Friday, Akina said approximately $134,000 would be used from his department and an additional $300,000 would be financed by the seller over a three-year period.

A decision is expected to be made at the city council meeting tomorrow night.
