Richardville congratulates Monroe County on River Raisin Heritage Trail opening
LANSING—Sen. Randy Richardville today congratulated Monroe County and the many supporters who helped make the River Raisin Heritage Trail a reality at the trail’s official ribbon cutting ceremony.
“This area has such tremendous historical significance to the county and the entire state,” Richardville said. “We are fortunate to have additional acreage for community members to recreate and enjoy this historic and beautiful setting.”
The River Raisin Heritage Trail will connect the Sterling State Park on Lake Erie with downtown Monroe.
When he served as a representative in the state House, Richardville worked with community leaders to acquire the land to connect the park to Monroe.
“Years ago, local officials, state legislators and even governors had a vision and saw the importance of Sterling State Park to the area,” Richardville said. “They recognized how expanding and improving the park area would prove beneficial to the town of Monroe. I am pleased to be a part of the effort and offer congratulations and thanks to everyone who worked so hard on its development.”
