Trail was named in recognition of the efforts of Scott Brooks, the
driving force behind the building of the Red River Community Centre.  This
pleasant trail skirts the Red River and weaves through a lovely greenspace
bordering the upscale suburb of Rivergrove. It has scenic overlooks, decorative
benches and foot bridges and is completely accessible for wheelchairs and
child strollers.
