Aldridge Creek Greenway needs to go thru the Golf Course!

Good news all you bike riders and walkers. Aldridge Creek Greenway expanded north from the Wal-Mart neighborhood store to the golf course. The trail is so beautiful and construction is almost complete. Only a small amount of construction remains before it's ready for public use and the grand opening.
