Manning and Carroll are two of the 22 communities who have been awarded Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) grants from the Natural Resource Commission of the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The Milwaukee Trestle Trail Park in Manning has been awarded $29,184 to assist with the construction of a 2,700 foot concrete trail that will run from downtown at Third Street, along the West Nishnabotna River and end at the Trestle Park on the north end of Manning. This park is designed with a primary focus on young adults with outdoor exercise equipment, volleyball, horseshoes, a shelter house and more. There will be some features for children included as well. Manning is also working with the National Park Service and the surrounding counties on regional trail development that would tie into the city’s trail system. The Carroll Community will be receiving a large grant, $122,218, for use in development of Segment A in the Carroll Recreational Trial system. This portion of Phase I will connect Northeast Park and Veteran’s Memorial Park with an approximately eight-tenths of a mile trail segment. In total, REAP has distributed nearly $2.4 million dollars this year.
