McAlpine Lake and Walking Trail

McAlpine Lake is a designated youth fishing lake created to better serve the general health and welfare of the municipality. The lake has a designated walking track surrounding it and now links to the walking track adjacent. Thanks to a grant from the MS Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks and in cooperation with Wildlife MS and the Dalrymple Foundation, new signage, trees, benches, bike racks, newly paved path, and more may be utilized by our citizens and visitors.
