Residents of Hunters Creek, along with Township officials, marked the opening of a new 2,000 foot walking trail linking the neighborhood of 100 homes to Cranberry’s Graham Park. A ceremonial ribbon cutting and cookout on the evening of October 2 celebrated the completion of the 5-foot wide crushed stone footpath. Construction of the trail grew out of a partnership between the Hunters Creek Homeowners Association and the Township, begun about a year ago. Labor for the project was provided by Cranberry’s Department of Public Works, while a five-year financial commitment from the Homeowners Association financed much of the material needed to complete the project. Permits from the Department of Environmental Protection to cross the environmentally sensitive meadow and woodland area were secured by the Township. The development of trails and sidewalks throughout the Township was a major goal identified in Cranberry’s 2009 comprehensive plan.
