The city of Wyoming is extending its hike/bike trail, but the new pathway has left a long-time community garden in its wake, and several advocates say not enough is being done to find a replacement. Bulldozers came through in recent weeks to clear the way for the extension, which will more than double Wyoming's current trail. It will connect to the city center in a later phase. It's been part of the master plan here for over a decade. Other options were considered, City Manager Lynn Tetley said, but there was just no other way. The gardens had to go.
