Woodland Trail to be named for Karen Fraser

June 16th, 2017 by Ken

Portions of the Woodland Trail between Lacey and Olympia will soon be named for Karen Fraser.

The two cities and the two city parks boards have been working on the idea for some time and have agreed that naming the trail for Fraser is a good way of recognizing her four decade commitment to the community.   Lacey Mayor Andy Ryder said that it was an appropriate way to honor the city’s first woman mayor and her efforts to make Lacey and the greater community a better place to live.

Fraser said she was highly honored to receive the recognition.   “I’ve been a trails supporter forever,” she said.  “I’ve supported every trail project and I’ve walked most of the trails in the county.  It’s a great honor.”

The exact details are yet to be worked out.   But, Karen Fraser will soon see her name associated with the trail which ties, Lacey, Olympia together.
