The Elizabeth River Trail (ERT) Foundation announced new grant awards from KOMPAN and REI to fund new projects at the Plum Point Park Trailhead in Norfolk.
The ERT was awarded a $50,000 matched funding grant from KOMPAN to construct an obstacle course near the Plum Point Park Trailhead with a circuit of fun and challenging elements to improve agility, muscle tone and strength at a section of the ERT that sees nearly 1,100 users daily.
Along with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Bike Norfolk, the ERT was awarded a “Loving Your Local Outdoors” grant from REI. The $5,000 grant will fund a new bike maintenance station and bike racks at the Plum Point Park Trailhead.
