Cass River walkway project is done

  The Cass River walkway in Heritage Park, built over 20 years ago, was recently renovated, thanks to the Frankenmuth Noon Rotary Club.

  Pyramid Construction began work May 21 and Frankenmuth Parks and Recreation Director Daren Kaschinske said it is now fully open to the public.

  Construction of the 9/10ths of a mile route consisted of grinding up the old asphalt, recycling it for the base of the new trail and repaving it to eight-foot wide. The former trail was seven-foot wide.

  The Noon Rotary Club funded the project in honor of its 75th anniversary. The club also donated six new benches along the riverwalk for residents and guests to rest and enjoy the scenery along the river. The project cost nearly $85,000.

  “The riverwalk provides a great place for walkers, runners, bikers, strollers, inline skaters and other non-motorized users to enjoy a relaxing tour around Heritage Park,” Kaschinske said.

  Rotary is currently in the process of setting up a long-term maintenance fund to off-set future costs of the riverwalk.
