An anonymous donor has given the county $850,000 for a five-mile bicycle trail at Enterprise South Nature Park.
Lee Norris, general services administrator, said, "We were approached by this individual, who enjoys riding his bike at Enterprise South."
He said the individual wanted to make a contribution to the park that is next to the Enterprise South Industrial Park.
Mr. Norris said the donor, who he said "is older than me," prefers riding on roads rather than mountain bike trails.
He said, after ongoing talks, it was decided to build a bicycle path along the five-mile Still Hollow Road.
Tom Lamb, parks director, said that because of the sometimes steep terrain at the park that the new trail would go away from the road at points.
The donation was accept by the County Commission, and design work will now begin.
