Alabama has more than 5,000 miles of accessible waterways for recreational use.
Develop access to Walker County waterways to expand outdoor recreational opportunities as well as promote ecotourism.
Through public-private partnerships, we are currently working to develop a 31-mile blueway, or water-based trail, to create greater access to physical activity opportunities in order to build a culture of health. By leveraging natural resources, the Waterways Project will connect seven access points along two waterways, creating 31 miles of new scenic, public green space.
In 2018, one new access point was created and two existing access points were improved.
