Alameda Creek Trail gets facelift
Courtesy of Alameda County Water District (ACWD) and Excelitas Technologies, those who enjoy the Alameda Creek Trail near Niles will experience new visual amenities along with the tranquil beauty of the path that meanders along the creek.
Combining their efforts on a pleasant Friday afternoon (May 30), volunteers from both organizations painted murals, outlined by local artist Laura Ramie on three ACWD facilities, turning basic, industrial-looking buildings into colorful displays of art. Artwork was selected from ACWD art and slogan contest winners of the last 12 years. The murals were part of a larger clean up effort that also included Niles Community Park and Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area.
Joel Falcone, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Excelitas Technologies noted that their participation was part of a company-wide effort to become involved in local efforts to create a pleasant, clean and sustainable environment. The results of the day's efforts proved his statement.
