Anchorage Trail

The Greenway Team prepared a greenway master plan for this one mile scenic corridor which runs through a hardwood forest in the heart of Anchorage, Kentucky. The plan (created for John Schnatter, founder of Papa John’s Pizza) provides an important link between the city’s newest town center, schools, businesses, neighborhoods and the “Tom” Sawyer State Park to the west. The trail addresses the needs of multiple users including bicyclists, pedestrians and equestrians. The project includes a 300’ span pedestrian bridge with stone pillars, natural trails, an amphitheater, a fishing pier, a wetland boardwalk, gateway features and an interpretive wayfinding display throughout. The team was also responsible for preparing construction plans for this project.
