Lots of trail maintenance been happening at Eagle Bike Park!

August 10th an LDS youth group from the Eagle 6th Ward came out and performed trail maintenance at Eagle Bike Park (EBP). In the past some of the kids (and even a few of the adults) have raced BMX and mountain biked at EBP. They were looking for a community service project and this fit perfectly. They worked for only a few hours but were successful in clearing weeds off much of the BMX track and weed wacked along a few of the mountain bike tracks.

Ed Newgen was gracious enough to provide cold bottled water which was much appreciated as it was very hot and dusty as you can imagine. The group consisted of 9 adults running weed wackers and about 30 high school kids. Here’s a group pic sporting their Ephesians 6:6-7 shirts. (Scripture reads, “Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; with good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men”).

Late August a bunch of weed-eaters came out to the park and spent about 3 days grazing… ( Pic from Facebook: Reed Cycle )

Goats!

Sept. 3rd, a few folks went out and worked on Junk Yard and shoveled up all that dirt that washed down the hill and covered the handicap parking area.   I had a good friend visiting form California and I put her to work shoveling dirt.  Thanks Wendy!  You can come back anytime… Moving Dirt!

Sept.   4th, Pastor Ed from Eagle Nazarene Church brought over 100 people to clean the park, repair some trails and they did an amazing job. The park looks great!  Here are some after shots…. We owe them a huge thank you!
