**August 24, 2016: Agricenter received a $100,000 grant to improve this trail. Click here to read more about it.**
Agricenter Trail, a Greenprint Certified Project, is a partially paved path that connects the Pick-Your-Own Strawberry Patch to the west to the Farmer's Market on the east.
Agricenter Trail will connect Shelby Farms Park to the Agricenter which showcases the agricultural character of the region. The trail will ultimately lead to the Farmer’s Market which is a cultural resource, and historic site as it is the original 1930s dairy barn from the penal farm. The paving of the trail will use regionally-accepted criteria for linking the network of greenspaces.
The vision for this trail started when Agricenter was built in 1985 and the intention was to pave it to completion. The desire lines on the path are evidence of current community use. By enhancing the partially graveled road bed and the desire lines that constitute this unpaved section of trail, we will 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.
