On Monday afternoon, August 7, the Smith County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Carthage City Walking Track. The new walking track is located across the street from the current Carthage City Park & Pool. The property was formerly a trailer park.

Mayor Donnie Dennis and the Carthage City Council have plans to continue to improve the property. Mayor Dennis stated the next phases of the project will be to build bathrooms and shelters on the property.

The Carthage City Walking Track is officially open and Mayor Donnie Dennis invites everyone to come out and enjoy this new edition to the town of Carthage.
