Summary: Drinking fountain and dog waterer installed on city hike/bike/exercise trail in Hastings, Nebraska, USA

Hastings Pioneer Spirit Trail is a municipal concrete hiking/biking/exercise trail that loops around and crisscrosses the City of Hastings, Nebraska. Construction on the trail began in 2003 and approximately 10.5 miles have been completed to date. The trail was originally funded by federal money with a local match but has been enlarged with funds from a city sales tax. The trail is designed to provide for a pedestrian, biking and exercise route between major recreational and shopping centers in the city. The trail has been very popular with Hastings residents, but public water fountains along the route are scarce, and the city budget does not include water fountains at this time. The City Parks and Rec Department suggested that the fountain be purchased by Sunrise Rotary because of heavy use of the trail at the proposed site, its high visibility and the need for a dog watering station at this location. Sunrise Rotary's DDF allocation of $1,100 will be used for the project, with the remaining cost of $5,150 to be contributed by Hastings Sunrise Rotary through fundraisers or donations from individual club members. The unique drinking fountain will be maintained by Parks and Rec following installation by Fall 2019.
