Murray Run Needs Some Repairs

The tennis courts at Murray Run are overgrown and cracked. These weeds damage the court surface.

The Murray Run greenway trail in Roanoke needs some attention pretty quickly right now before it falls into serious dis-repair. The trail is generally healthy and--as a matter of fact--quite lovely in most spots, but the tennis court in Fishburn Park has cracked and invited weeds in, while the downhill path has been gutted by rain in several places.

These are easy fixes right now, but could be serious if left untreated. I hope the City of Roanoke will take note because the trail us used a lot.

Here are a few photos I took there yesterday while piling up my 10,000 daily steps.

I'm always drawn to this fountain, which must have a great story to tell.
