Parkwood is Open!

After over five years of hard work by Jon Dallow, the city council, Dan Cook etc; that culminated in a couple of months of hard digging by that was then followed by a couple of months of checking the trail, filling out paperwork, putting up signs, more paperwork, carefully explaining why it’s not open yet, completing risk assessments and jumping through a few more hoops……… Parkwood Springs MTB circuit is now officially open!

Blacka Planned Maintainance – Piper House Gate
