A ribbon-cutting ceremony kicked off the completed Oyster Creek Trail off Cartwright Road on Feb. 9 with free T-shirts and backpacks. Residents can now travel on foot or bicycle the 2.3 miles from Mosley Park past the Edible Arbor Trail section and follow the trail along Oyster Creek Bayou from Cartwright Road to Dulles Avenue. When improvements are made to the Cartwright Road Bridge this spring, the trail will be extended under the bridge and connected to the existing trail south of Cartwright Road.

City managers and staff, including Parks & Recreation Director Larry Foos, second from right, were also on-hand for the event.
