Nature Trail Reopening Ceremony

All residents are invited to a ceremony celebrating the reopening of the Nature Trail at 9 a.m. Friday, January 27 at the entrance of the Nature Trail off Col. T. Heyward Drive.
 
The Nature Trail has been closed since October as a result of extensive damage from Hurricane Matthew, and the Community Association thanks you for your patience during the months-long repair process. As you resume your regular walks along the trail, please keep in mind that it was a victim of nature’s fury, and the wetlands may not look the same as you remember them.
 
The Board of Directors and Community Association staff looks forward to seeing you at the ceremony on January 27. The first 200 attendees will receive a small giveaway to commemorate the reopening of one of Sun City’s most beloved amenities.
