The Elizabeth River Trail, a beautiful 10.5 mile trail paralleling the Elizabeth River, continues to thrive with the addition of trailheads and trail amenities. I had the fun opportunity to participate in unveiling the new obstacle course near Plum Point Park. I “did” the obstacle course as part of the fun event. Let’s just say, there were some obstacles I delicately avoided or erred on the side of caution. Frankly, I didn’t want to break anything! I saw real athletes do the course later and that was impressive. Amenities added to the trail include trash cans and bike repair stations. New wayfinding signage is being placed along the trail as well.
Norfolk Is looking very well with its 3.8% COVID-19 7-day positivity rate. Thanks to all for social distancing, masking and adhering to the Phase 3 guidelines. I especially want to thank our restaurants and businesses who have fully supported these guidelines.
Have a great October and enjoy the fall weather. My best to you and your family.
