A National Park Service conservation program is providing Detroit's Belle Isle with a $750,000 grant for a new 6-mile trail.

A National Park Service conservation program will help pay for a new 6-mile multi-use trail around Detroit's Belle Isle Park.

Michigan Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters say the program is providing $750,000 for the project. 

The Land and Water Conservation Fund State and Local Assistance program provides grants for local and state park projects outside national park boundaries. Private investments will match the federal funding for the trail.

Belle Isle is a 987-acre park in the Detroit River. It features a nature zoo, conservatory, driving range, maritime museum and other attractions.
