21st Century Parks, Inc. is set to open the northern end of The Strand at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, September 30. This highly anticipated event will be honored with a ribbon-cutting ceremony near John Floyd Community Building in Pope Lick Park at 11 a.m. on September 30.

Following the ceremony, guests are invited to join 21st Century Parks founder and CEO Dan Jones for a bike ride through The Strand. During the 12-mile, round-trip journey, participants will see a few of The Strand’s special areas, including The Ascent, featuring a three-span bridge more than 670 feet long, and The Palisades—a gorgeous, limestone cliff towering over Floyds Fork.
