Trails from Freeport (TFF) is hosting "Discover Freeport Park Day," Sunday, June 23, from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., 1745 252nd Street, Decorah.
Visitors can enjoy a light, free-will donation lunch provided by Lynch BBQ, Casey's and other local businesses. There also will be a bounce house and games for kids, including a cake walk.
TFF is raising funds to build a 1.5-mile paved path to eliminate pedestrian and cyclist traffic on County Highway A6W/Old Stage Rd. and connect Freeport safely to the Trout Run Trail.
The organization is accepting donations of redeemable cans and plastic bottles to support the project. A receptacle for bottles and cans will be available at Freeport Park through Sunday.
TFF has raised nearly $125,000 toward the trail extension. To contribute to the project, make a check payable to NE Iowa RC&D, PO Box 125, Decorah, IA 52101.
