A portion of the trail at Wilshire Trails Park will be closed Wednesday through Friday as it is replaced.

“Due to the location of the trail segment, there will be no available detour or bypass,” Julie Butler Colombini with Gainesville Parks and Recreation said in a news release.

The section is about 500 feet from Ridgewood Avenue to the Overlook Trail, which leads up to Wood’s Mill Academy.

The city has replaced “significant portions of the trail, as well as bridges, at Wilshire over the past year,” Colombini told The Times. “We do them in segments like this in order to be cost-effective as well as respectful of the public’s use of the park.”
