3-18-15!! MONKS RD STAGING AREA IS CLOSED TO ALLOW FOR DRYING FOR A WEEK OR TWO, WE WILL UPDATE THE WEBSITE WHEN IT IS REOPENED, THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING! Please use the Kelly Rd or D-19 Depot lots for now.
We are incredibly excited to announce the recent improvements to the staging area which began in the Fall of 2014 and will be continued in the Spring of 2015!!
We now have our very own vault toilet!! The entire staging area surface has been covered with 600 tons of 23AA road gravel which will greatly improve our parking area. It will take a while to settle and harden and we may even have to park elsewhere during the spring thaw, but the rewards will be worth it. Also the brush along the road has been cleared away to increase the visibility of the staging area.
Spring of 2015 will bring a hand pump well, new kiosk, mounting block, picket posts, and a gate and fence for the back field. PTRA is also planning on adding a pavilion in 2016.
We have also been busy trimming trails, and our trails are currently in good condition. However, continued trail maintenance is an ongoing effort, financially and physically. Please join us out on the trails for a couple of hours when you can and definitely support us with your membership AND by buying flowers in the spring. Thank you!!
Much thanks to all, but especially PTRA President Sue Armstrong and Chuck Dennison, Pinckney Rec Area manager, for their hard work which has led to the BIG changes for our wonderful park! Check out the 2014 Fall Newsletter for more info and pictures.
