Agricenter Sunflower Trail, a Greenprint Certified Project, is a bike-ped path that connects the Pick-Your-Own Strawberry Patch to the Farmer's Market. 

Agricenter Sunflower Trail showcases the agricultural character of the region and connects Shelby Farms Park to Agricenter. The trail leads to the Farmer’s Market which is a cultural resource. The paving of the trail used regionally-accepted criteria for linking the network of greenspaces.

The vision for this trail started when Agricenter was built in 1986 and the intention was to pave it to completion. The desire lines on the path were evidence of current community use.  By enhancing the partially graveled road bed and the desire lines that constitute this formerly unpaved section of trail, we encourage users of all ages and abilities. In addition, with better access to the trail through installation of bollards through the fully funded IOBY campaign, we anticipate seeing more use of the trail. The bollards have been purchased and will be installed shortly. 

Below are pictures of current conditions of the trail.
