THE BRONX - A scenic new trail near the Bronx Zoo officially opened Tuesday to pedestrians and cyclists.

The new trail is part of the Bronx River Greenway and crosses under the Bronx River Parkway. A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place today at 180th Street in West Farms to unveil the $2.7 million project.

The Bronx River Alliance worked with the city Department of Parks and Recreation to complete the mile-long trail. The greenway will be 23 miles long when completed, says a member of the Alliance.
