A network of parks, sidewalks, and leisure trails bring life and vitality to our streets. New Albany currently has 36 miles of leisure trails for residents, visitors and business park employees to enjoy.
The New Albany Parks & Trails Advisory Board periodically evaluates the leisure trail system to prioritize which missing links are most important to be addressed.
In order to best inform this board on the existing missing leisure trail links, city staff worked with MKSK to examine existing leisure trail gaps identified through previous trail prioritization efforts. Staff walked each gap and evaluated conditions which would influence the feasibility of extending leisure trails through the area, including gathering information on grading, natural features, potential future connections and alignment considerations. These results represent the board’s findings and most recent recommendations.
