The Townsend River Walk & Arboretum Gets New Steps

This winter, Mark Seder, Tuckaleechee Garden Club River Walk Chairperson, led the planning, design, and installation of much-needed new steps connecting the Townsend Multi-Purpose Trail to the Townsend River Walk & Arboretum. The project entailed replacing old, deteriorating railroad tie steps with 30 new steps, spanning 63 feet in length with approximately 25 feet of vertical rise along the bank of the Little River.
