Signs were installed this week along the downtown park trail next to the Brazos River and across the bank at the intersection of North Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Herring Avenue.
Two kiosks were installed at Indian Spring Park and Bledsoe-Miller Park.
Four directional signs and 12 quarter-mile markers along the pathway also were installed.
