TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — All parks across West Lafayette are getting a new safety feature.
There is a trail marker system being developed.
Parks Superintendent Janet Fawley says the project will cost around $11,000.
You will soon be able to locate exactly where you are if you're walking the trails.
The marker system still needs to be mapped out in all 14 parks across the city.
Fawley says safety is a top priority, especially in remote areas like Happy Hollow Park.
She says someone had a heart attack on the trails a few weeks ago.
"The fire department had to get to them and I think they could have got to them faster had we had a position for them to go to. So they did save this woman's life, great, but we could have got there faster maybe," said Fawley.
Fawley hopes to have the trail marker system ready by next spring.
