Adams Park Master Plan Meeting

For those of you with interest:  there is going to be a Public Meeting for the Adams Parks Master Plan:

Tuesday June 14th
From 6:30 to 8:30pm
Adams Park Community Center
3230 John Creighton Blvd

You may recall that Adams Park is where THOR, IMBA and Activate Omaha partnered with the City of Omaha and others in 2010 to create a short, beginner-friendly single track trail.  When IMBA was here, we were also able to sketch out our "dream scenario" for the park , which included an expansion of the loop, in addtion to a pump track, a more intermediate level trail and more.  We were not given the go-ahead to move forward with any of these due to the impending master plan process.

The Adams Park trail has been very well received, and Activate Omaha is leading daily rides there this summer with groups from Girls Inc., the YMCA, Salem Baptist Church and Campfire.  We'd love to expand the biking options for kids in north Omaha in Adams Park...if you feel strongly about this, too, please come out to the meeting!
