Park Board To Look At How To Fund Centennial Trail Extention

The Centennial Trail is about to get a significant expansion. Work starts soon to extend the trail west along the Spokane River gorge near Kendall Yards.

There is currently a gap between Riverfront Park and where it meets up with T.J. Meenach Bridge, but this expansion will close at least a portion of the gap.

The only question now is how to cover the remaining gap. On Thursday, the Spokane Park Board will consider financing packages that will be used to finish the trail in Kendall Yards.

The Spokesman-Review has more details.
