Soon Gilbert will have even more recreation opportunities as a two-mile biking and walking path will be completed along the powerlines between Cooper and Lindsay and running between Elliot Rd and Guadalupe Rd. Gilbert residents expect the new paths to bring even more foot traffic to downtown.
The project, which was approved in 2006, is expected to open in the next couple of months. The new stretch of the pathway will include landscaping and fountains and included photographs and agricultural history of Gilbert. East Valley Tribune recently had a complete write-up on the project.
