Traverse City Celebrates Grand Opening of Boardman Lake Loop Trail After 30 Years

After more than 30 years, Traverse City is celebrating the grand opening of the Boardman Lake Loop Trail.

People in Traverse City can now enjoy a four mile loop around the perimeter of the Boardman Lake.

Completing the Boardman Lake Loop Trail has been a top community priority on the minds of many community members and public figures. It serves as a critical corridor for non-motorized transportation and recreation in the area.

“This is really a legacy project, when we were working with everybody on the design and the engineering, what we knew is, this isn’t something here for 10 years or 20 years, this is for generations to come,” Julie Clark, CEO of TART Trails, said.

Clark also says that the project stands as an example of what is possible when people work toward a collective community goal.
