A 1-mile "Voyage of Discovery Adventure Loop Trail" is coming to Lafayette Avenue in spring 2019.
The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation and KaBoom! have awarded the West Buffalo Charter School a Play Everywhere Challenge grant of $47,000 to build the two-way trail between the school and Lafayette High School.
It will be designed during the school year and installed in 2019. The trail will include games, art and periscopes. A performance space by the charter school will offer playground equipment that includes three drums and a xylophone.
Project manager Anne Bergantz said the project will serve an area with many international students.
"We would love to have them connect to the community and feel at home, and this is a project that can do that," Bergantz said.
