Pensacola LEAP TrailOn Monday March 18, 2013 Mike Nixon, Innisfree’s Vice President of Hotel Operations, joined other local dignitaries in a ground breaking celebration for Pensacola’s newest public fitness amenity.

Innisfree is proud to contribute $25,000 to the 3 mile long LEAP Trail.

The trail will be used by cyclists, joggers and and walkers.  Pets and strollers will also be welcome.  It will feature 10 workout stations with illustrated instructions for circuit training.

Families will also enjoy the LEAP trail.  It will include playgrounds accessible to disabled children as well picnic tables, park benches, waste receptacles, bike racks, and pet waste stations. Innisfree's Mike Nixon at LEAP Ceremony

The trail will begin near the Pensacola International Airport, run south down 12th Avenue through Roger Scott Athletic Complex down Summit Boulevard and across to Bayou Boulevard. 

It’s location close to Innisfree’s new Hyatt Place Hotel means the trail will be a high quality free fitness amenity for hotel guests. 

The project is being spearheaded by Leadership Pensacola, a program operated by the Greater Pensacola Chamber with the goal of ensuring the community’s pool of talented leaders would be continually renewed.

To date, more than 1,200 people have completed the Leadership Pensacola program and have acquired the skills, passion and connections to work effectively as community trustees.
