A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on Monday, July 14 to celebrate the completion of the Mt. Kessler Trailhead.
The ceremony will be held at the trailhead at 5:30 p.m. and city officials said the public is encouraged to attend.
The trailhead is located at 2600 Judge Cummings Road, west of Cato Springs Road and Interstate 49 in south Fayetteville.
In February, aldermen voted to allow Mayor Lioneld Jordan to apply for and accept a $1.5 million matching grant from the Walton Family Foundation. That amount, along with $1.6 million pulled from reserves, was used to purchase 328 acres of land on Mount Kessler from Chambers Bank.
