NAPLES, Fla. – After nearly three decades of dreams and planning, the Gordon River Greenway — two miles of winding trails, boardwalks, bridges and streams connecting Golden Gate Parkway to central Naples — will officially open to the public Thursday.

The Naples City Council, Collier County commissioners and others involved in the 27-year project will gather at 8:30 a.m. Thursday for a ribbon-cutting at the kayak launch, located at 1590 Goodlette-Frank Rd., the east end of the joint parking lot between Naples Zoo and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida.

“It’s been quite an effort for a quarter of a century,” said Scott Cameron, a former Southwest Florida Land Preservation Trust president who helped get it started in 1987. “It’s been a great collaborative effort between people who really cared. We’ve had fabulous board members over the years.”
