By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – Lowe’s Home Improvement has awarded the Keep Tupelo Beautiful project a $20,000 grant, which will be used for the Music Bend Nature Trail in Veterans Park.
The trail, which opened in August, is a 2.5-mile walking and running course that snakes through the wooded area along Mud Creek and marks the spot where a young Elvis Presley used to swim.
The grant will help pay for benches, trash receptacles, QR Code technology and signage, native trees and shrubs, foot bridges and a boardwalk.
