Trail Town Bexley
The City of Bexley is exploring becoming a Trail Town. This title indicates trail and bicycle friendliness, sustainable practices, and effective connections between trail and town that benefit the community in health, recreation, and economic development.
Our beautiful City of Bexley is fortunate to be situated along the Alum Creek Trail that runs from Three Creeks Metro Park up to Westerville near Polaris. We are also situated nearby to the Ohio-Erie Trail. With the region moving forward in expanding our trail networks through Central Ohio Greenways, and with the intended creation of the nation’s largest interconnected trail and park system through the RAPID 5 project, our community has many unique opportunities to improve our connections to the trail, become more bike-friendly, and drive economic development.

Trail Town Assessment
Saturday, July 9 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Including Optional Conversation at 12:00 pm
Join us in this fun outdoor walk and/or bike through Bexley and the Alum Creek Trail. We will be in groups and will assess our community and trail on a variety of criteria relating to a Trail Town. Your assistance and input in this event will help us in our efforts to make a more bicycle-friendly Bexley and enhance our connections to an established trail. We're interested in your observations and insights as we seek to improve accessibility throughout the City and in central Ohio. Your experiences as a frequent or new trail user, resident, or patron of Bexley businesses will be valuable as we move through this process. This event is free and open to the public!
We will meet at Bexley City Hall at 10:00 am, briefly introduce the assessment, and then head out in groups on foot or by bicycle to make our observations. We will then meet back at City Hall at 12:00 noon for refreshments and conversation where we will discuss our findings. We look forward to meeting you and to our conversation as a community!
If you are interested in participating, we ask that you RSVP by clicking here. If you have questions about this program, or the event on Saturday, July 9, please email Marcus at email@example.com. We hope to see you there!
Bike Enthusiasts in Action
Visitors are already coming to Bexley along the Alum Creek Trail!
Welcome to Bexley!
High-quality bike parking that’s accessible to local businesses encourages trail users to stop and stay a while. This neighborhood in the south of Pittsburgh is clearly a popular spot for riders to park and enjoy what the city has to offer.
Infrastructure that makes cyclists and pedestrians feel safe gives streets that might have once been overlooked new vibrancy, with people gathering for leisurely shopping, dining, and more. This street in Cumberland makes for a pleasant visit for pedestrians and cyclists alike.
Signage is a fantastic way to communicate what a town has to offer, highlight local businesses, and guide visitors to destinations. This sign in Connellsville quickly communicates the amenities available in town and how to get there, making the ride into town a breeze.
