A ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open Lagoon's portion of the city's nature trail will be Saturday, Nov. 14, 10 a.m. along 300 North - the old Lagoon Lane.

City officials will attend the ceremony, just west of Farmington's "Rock" LDS Chapel. The public is invited."Lagoon has been heavily involved in the trail," Lagoon spokesman Dick Andrew said.

He said Lagoon has spent almost $750,000 on the trail that includes four bridges over Farmington Creek, benches and other amenities.

The asphalt trail is for foot travel, bicycle and equestrian use. It basically follows the creek.

Andrew said the trailheads along the east perimeter of the park, serving as a buffer between it and Farmington City.

It also extends to the south end of the park, near the Lagoon Campground.

He said Lagoon will maintain the trail.

Farmington's master plan includes a trail from Farmington Canyon to the Great Salt Lake. The center portion is now complete.
