The Lima Rotary Club has helped rebuild the All People's Trail at Kendrick Woods.
The All People’s Trail at Kendrick Woods Metro Park is a gift from the Lima Rotary Foundation and was originally constructed in 1987. It consists of a 0.33 mile boardwalk through the some of the most natural terrain Allen County has to offer. The original boardwalk lasted for over 30 years and was constructed over the course of three months by park personnel.  There are approximately 25,000 visitors per year that utilize the All People’s Trail. These visitors include park program groups, school groups, nursing homes, families, birders, hikers, and a variety of other user groups.
The new boardwalk construction is complete and has been made possible due to the generous donation of the Lima Rotary Club. The boardwalk took approximately one month to construct with the expertise of park maintenance staff and the grit of seasonal workers who carried lumber throughout the project site. The Johnny Appleseed Metropolitan Park District is grateful for the generosity and forethought of the Lima Rotary Club in helping to replace this vital link within Kendrick Woods. The Park District looks forward to many more years of happy trail goers. See you on the trail!
