Sites & Attractions

You can experience the enjoyment of the trail that will take you along the east and north edge of George, to Locker Park and around the pond, following on along the Rio Grande Creek to the south portion of the city limits where you will hear the harmony of the wheels meeting the pavement as you cross under the bridge next to the Little Rock River. Through the frog ponds you will be serenaded by a choir of frogs.

As you travel this scenic route, you can rest at any of the 38 benches placed by families of loved ones. Or you can read over 225 plaques that have been placed in 8’x8’ concrete sections. These square sections are sold for $200 each and are reminders of those interested in the project and the community. If you are interested in purchasing a square or a bench, you may call the George City Office at 712-475-3612 or e-mailing your interest to
