Urban Trail earns praise

The city has earned some plaudits for its “Urban Trail.” Revere was among 11 communities recognized by the Massachusetts Public Health Association and a partnership of public health and planning organizations for their accomplishments promoting public health through community design. In honoring Revere, the association cited the city’s Urban Trail as a tool to promote safe walking on existing pathways throughout the city. The awards were presented at a recent ceremony at the State House. Launched in fall 2011, Revere’s Urban Trail is a 1.8-mile walking trail in the area of the Whelan Elementary School. It was developed by the Revere CARES Coalition, a program promoting healthy eating and fitness in the city that is funded in part by Partners Health Care and the state Department of Public Health. More recently, the Beachmont Improvement Committee established an urban walking trail in the Beachmont neighborhood through a grant from the coalition.
