Folsom Mayor Stephen Miklos recently presented a resolution of commendation to Parker Development Company the developer of The Parkway in Folsom.
“Parker Development Company has been an important and consistent partner in serving the Folsom community by building and enhancing quality trails within The Parkway,” said Miklos.
Parker Development Company was recently awarded the Developer Award at the American Trails International Trails Symposium for its quality, well designed, multi-use trail system that is integrated into The Parkway development. The developer was commended for bringing back the natural riparian corridor that was present prior to the early mining activities. Parker recreated an existing stream through the site linking existing forests, wetlands and ponds together.
The Parkway has five miles of trails which established the foundation of the Humbug-Willow Creek Parkway. There are 14 observation and interpretive sites that provide insight into Folsom’s mining history.
These trails are used for walking, jogging, biking, and bird watching. The trails also serve as a transportation facility for residents, school children and bicycle commuters.
