The paved trail will accommodate walkers, runners and cyclists and will be Americans with Disabilities Act accessible. The pathway will also feature emergency call boxes, cameras and lighting. Some 827 acres of open land, including the county’s Lake Mayer/Bacon Regional Park tract and the city’s 77-acre Daffin Park, will be accessible from the trail—a truly remarkable achievement. In addition, the trail will be a recreational and transportation asset for the whole community.

The six-mile public trail, which parallels the Truman Parkway and Casey Canal, will link Daffin Park on Victory Drive to Lake Mayer Park on Montgomery Cross Road. The trail is part of Tide To Town, Savannah’s Urban Trail System. This system will be a protected network of walking and bicycling trails connecting all of Savannah’s neighborhoods, from the heart of the city to our marshes and waterways. Tide To Town will serve every aldermanic district within the City of Savannah, with the potential to expand to unincorporated Chatham County, Tybee Island, Garden City, Thunderbolt, Bloomingdale, and Port Wentworth, integrating with long distance walking and bicycling trails like the East Coast Greenway.
