Upgrades coming to Morganfield walking trail

MORGANFIELD, KY (WFIE) - The walking trail at Morganfield City Park will soon see lots of improvements and upgrades.

Gov. Steve Beshear announced more than $1-million in grant money will go to several trails and parks in Kentucky.

Morganfield's trail will see $50,000 of that.

The governor says the funding will result in more tourism dollars flowing into local economies.

The grant will be used for assistance in acquisition of easements, development and maintenance of recreational trails, and for trailhead facilities.
