LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - There's a new outdoor, environmental venue set to open March 16, in Longview.

The Green is  green space project created by Keeping Longview Beautiful. The area will feature different pavilions, a half mile walking trail, and six different educational and cultural niches.

Friends and families are invited to come and enjoy the many festivities set for The Green's grand opening. Food trucks, music, and even green beer are just a few of activities participates can join.

Make sure and bring your blankets and/or chairs, so when nightfall hits you'll be comfortable sitting underneath the stars. No cooler will be allowed.

Keeping Longview Beautiful created the eco-friendly terrain not just for human enjoyment, but for wildlife and nature surrounding it also. The Green consists of nine acres of landscape designed as an effort for reforestation. Native trees cover the grounds to help combat the greenhouse effect, provide clean, oxygen rich air, and also create habitat for wildlife. The Green is set to be a vital piece to East Texas health, growth, and future.

The Green is located on the northwest corner of SPUR 63 and Highway 31.
