We'll be able to get much closer to the Mississippi River, once the recently-approved Beaver Island Trail extension is completed. St. Cloud Park and Rec Director Scott Zlotnik says the designs call for ripping-out the existing stairway and trail on the north side of the River's Edge Convention Center, and installing a grand stairway and plaza area.
The St. Cloud City Council has voted to approve spending nearly $6.2 million to extend the Beaver Island Trail in downtown St. Cloud. The council approved the low bid and budget for the project, which includes the river front and staircase improvements next to the River's Edge Convention Center.
The new extension of the Beaver Island Trail held its grand opening today (Tuesday) with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. The new trail section is over a mile long, stretching from 33rd Street South to River Bluffs Regional Park. It also includes a trail head shelter located behind FedEx.
Phase 3 of the Beaver Island Trail project goes before the Park and Recreation Board tonight. The project is again moving forward after the St. Cloud City Council rejected an earlier plan to route the trail behind the River's Edge Condominium.
