Kingston breaks ground on new greenways network

A network of public walking trails is being built into an upscale residential community on the shores of Watts Bar Lake after city officials amended a hefty federal grant awarded more than a decade ago, writes Bob Fowler of the Knoxville News Sentinel.

City Manager James Pinkerton said the amended grant totals $3,015,928. That funding covers costs for three greenways, and the city is seeking a grant for a fourth paved path, Kingston Mayor Troy Beets said.

The Ladd Landing Greenways system, more than 2.3 miles of 10-foot-wide asphalt walking trails, was officially launched this past week with a groundbreaking.

The three trails will connect to points of interest, from the 10-acre, city-owned Ladd Park to a planned new development in Ladd Landing, the high-end gated community developed by Matt Caldwell.
