Grand Opening of the New London Tech Trails

April 26, 2018

Thanks to everyone who came out today for the ribbon cutting event for the New London Tech Trails in Forest. A crowd of more than 100 people enjoyed coffee and donuts from local companies and then a brief tour of one of the trails in the park.

Bedford County Administrator, Carl Boggess, stated that it was a easy decision to develop this property into a park for work and for play. “These trails are phase one of what we hope will grow into including a picnic area, as well as soccer and softball fields for the community,” said Mr. Boggess. “It’s a great place for business, but also for the recreational amenities that we have here.”

On hand were several County staff members; our EDA Board Chairman, Mickey Johnson; District 2 Supervisor, Edgar Tuck, and students from the Bedford Science and Technology Center’s Construction class who built the kiosks that are located at two trail heads in the park.
