Goodbye Cheese Grater!

…And good riddance, with no one happier to say Goodbye than pets who need to be urged to cross the scary industrial clattering and occasionally icy slippery bridge over the Reedy River. The Swamp Rabbit Trail over the “Cheese Grater” bridge has now been closed for the next several months while a new bridge and second phase of the Cancer Survivor’s Park is constructed in this location.

The new boardwalk in the Cancer Survivors Park has 3 viewing platforms along the way. The most striking view is from the Leap of Faith Overlook near the highest point. The view currently includes just the Reedy River and the forest, but in the future the second half of the park will add much more visual interest, along with removal of the invasive plant species among the trees and the re-introduction of native plants.
