Before the end of 2018, six informational kiosks will be installed at strategic locations along the future Green Crescent Trails system in Clemson. These kiosks will provide maps, photos, and other information to inform walkers and bikers of current and planned pathways around the city.
On November 7th, 2016 the Clemson City Council officially voted on a resolution to endorse the Green Crescent Trail master plan for the City of Clemson and beyond. In this resolution, City Council also allocated $25,000 from that year’s budget for installing “wayfinding, kiosks, and maps along all of the Green Crescent Trail routes within the City of Clemson.”

The Friends of the Green Crescent Trail (FGC) and City of Clemson staff members chose strategic locations for the kiosks. These locations, which will be key hubs for the future trails, include:
Ashley Dearing Park off of Berkeley Drive
The Green Crescent Pedestrian Bridge off of Berkeley Drive
Gateway Park off of Highway 93
Clemson Park off of Frontage Road
The Clemson-Central Recreation Center off of Highway 93
Nettles Park off of Central Road
Each kiosk will include green metal roofing, a stone and concrete base, and a 3-sided information panel. The panels will be used to display maps, wayfinding information, and potential future trail sponsors.

Next Steps After the Kiosks
The kiosks are a small, first step towards implementation of the bigger trail system. Immediately after installation, the FGC group plans to work on additional steps. For example, the group will request that Clemson City Council fund actual trail improvements between several of the kiosks.
More specifically, this new proposal will include improved safety markings, crosswalks, and bike-lane barriers along Berkeley Drive. And the proposal will call for new paths as well. For example, it will request extending the existing trail network at Ashley Dearing Park/Tottie’s Place. And it will also request new trails at Clemson Park that connect to the existing Green Crescent Bridge near Clemson Elementary School.
For more details on the kiosk installation and the proposed Berkeley Drive improvements, the FGC group will make a presentation at the December 3rd, 2018 Clemson City Council meeting.
The Friends of the Green Crescent Trail are proud to support the City of Clemson’s volunteer effort to restore the boardwalks of the Larry W. Abernathy Waterfront Park March 19-24. For more information, contact Lindsey Newton at (864) 653-2030 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

A public meeting was held on May 26th, 2016 to share final Green Crescent Trail recommendations from the feasibility study conducted by Alta Planning + Design.
A PDF file of the slides from each of the public meetings can be found below. The slides include maps of trail routes, photo simulations to help visualize what certain routes will look like, estimated costs of construction, recommended phasing strategies for construction, and many more details about the proposed trail.
After receiving public feedback and conducting a final steering committee meeting, a final comprehensive feasibility study document will be published by June 30, 2016.
Please take your time to review the documents, share it with others, and give us feedback using the contact form below.
