On May 9, the East Coast Greenway Alliance (ECGA) will designate the Florida Park Service’s developing 19-mile Palatka-to-St. Augustine State Trail, into its network of trails. An important part of the Florida Greenways and Trails System, the PSAST is a critical component in the priority trail network, serving as a green infrastructure plan for the state.
The ECGA ceremonial event is slated to begin at 10 a.m., with planned celebration activities to include an unveiling of the new ECG signage and a guided tour offered by the park ranger along the opened 8.5-mile portion of the trail. Lunch will be provided by the Spuds, Elkton, Armstrong (SEA) Community Help Resource Center.
Parking for the PSAST designation will be available at St. John County’s, Armstrong Park, 4950 Harvey Ave., in Elkton.
