    Cyclists take to the new bike path opened Monday along the San Diego River Trail. It is in this same park a new section of the River Trail will open.

    The city is opening the longest segment of the San Diego River Trail in Santee, a historic landmark in the city of San Diego.

    The property first started as farm, which was tended by the Walker family from 1926 all the way to the 1960’s. Before the city purchased the park back in 2012, it was used for sand extraction.

    Now, attendees of the park will be able to see a giant dredge bucket that was left being from the sand mining era and the original horse-drawn plow that was used at the Walker family dairy farm.

    A brief ceremony will be held on Thursday at 3 p.m. that will feature members of the Walker family, as well as their historical family buggy and vintage photos.
