Saturday Dec. 7- east side park meeting

Recommended Posts

This flyer has been going around. My understanding is that plans for John Trevino Park are up in the air and there's a big push for a skate/bike facility. The meeting this Saturday could be an opportunity to voice your interest in the park doing that.

One issue I noticed: the park seems to be very difficult to get to without a car. For kids, that means it might as well be on the moon. The park is about two miles east of the Walnut Creek Trail on MLK/969. According to street view images, there's a bike lane along a fast-travelled road, but the lane ends 1/2 mile west of the park at Decker. While getting the idea to take root is the priority, I'd like to make it clear to those in charge how important it will be to make it accessible to everyone, including young people who can't drive and those who would rather pedal/ skate to the park.

I fish often out at Decker lake, and there's actually some decent bike paths in that area, but I'm not all that familiar with that particular park.

If it's anything like the area around Decker Lake Rd. and Decker LN, it's sketchy as hell.

I still hope it is a success, the community definitely needs as many of these kind of amenities as possible.

I recently went to the Rockstar BMX park in Houston.  It was awesome and get this...it was free!!  100% free to ride some asphalt pump tracks, 5 different bowls of varying skill level, and a decent size dirt pump track.  It really is a great use of land to get kids outside and doing something.  Despite this being a drive and a PITA to get to, I'd make the trip out there with my kids if they had an interest.  

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

Bump.  I'll be attending.  Some uppy-downie potential at the confluence of Walnut Creek at the Colorado River?
