Regular walkers in Gage Park now have a safer place to get in their daily stroll. The 2-mile Gage Park Fitness Loop trail encircles the park, winding through tree-lined paths and across the Westlake Pond. The first half of the trail was created by the City of Topeka as it completed work on Gage Boulevard and SW 10th Street. A grant from the Sunflower Foundation made possible the west side of the trail along Westchester and a grant from the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism allowed the completion of the north side of the trail. The trail serves residents of the surrounding neighborhoods, employees of nearby businesses and visitors to the park.
