Centennial Trail now “National Recreation Trail”

The U.S. Department of Interior has named the Centennial Trail a National Recreation Trail, which means DoI believes it contributes to the nation's "healt, conservation and recreation goals."

City of Spokane's Parks and Recreation Department announced the selection today, as well as a ceremony on June 18 at Veterans Park to mark being one of 31 trails to get the designation this year.

Seems fitting that the department give the Centennial Trail a national designation, considering the feds ponied up a chunk of money to help build it.
