SPARTANBURG, S.C. -

Partners for Active Living is looking for your ideas to enhance the Mary Black Rail Trail in Spartanburg. The group is developing a seven acre space along the trail at Forest Avenue and Union Street. It needs your help deciding what can benefit Rail Trail users most.

“Families, children, seniors, folks with disabilities,” said Partners for Active Living Executive Director Laura Ringo.”We want people to take into consideration lots of different community members."

Ringo says anything from a park and picnic tables to an outdoor gym or bathrooms could be considered.

“It is hard when you’re on a long run to carry water with you,” said trail user Jason Johnson. “So it would be nice if there were a place to have a little water or something."

"I think a playground would be nice,” said trail user Suzanne Lawson.

Partners for Active Living says this is the best time to make upgrades. The group tells 7 On Your Side an unreleased study will show more people are using the trail compared to a study three years ago. Plans are also in place to extend the trail beyond Country Club Road.

To submit ideas contact the Partners for Active Living Office or visit their Facebook page.
