MOBERLY - Moberly Parks and Recreation held the grand opening of the West 43 Wilderness Area on Wednesday.  The area will be a designated wilderness area where people can go hiking and horseback riding.  The property is located south of the Howard Hills Athletic Complex and will stay open from sunrise to sunset.

A number of officials attended the grand opening including the mayor and Chamber of Commerce.  A number of local horseback riders also attended the event.  The area took a year and a half to clear out and Director of Parks and Recreation Troy Bock said he thinks it is a positive thing for Moberly.

"It will draw people into the community and will offer something for everyone," Bock said.

Future plans involve making a connecting trail from the new property to Rothwell Park.  To learn more about the new area click here.
