Edson Bike Skills Park - 2018 Construction
It has been a very exciting summer! From June to September, there has been amazing progress with the construction of the Edson Bike Skills Park. In June, extensive mulching, organics stripping, and material staging were performed by Byers Enterprises , JayCee Enterprises, and Dirt Works. Sunshine Building products came out and helped pre-build some of the wood features. July saw the Hoots Inc. crew come in and start primary construction. It was a very challenging month, the crew put in large drainage segments, culverts, and weeping tile, all while having an above average rainfall. August brought drier weather and with it great gains in areas being built. Husky Energy came out for a work bee day. The Hoots crew wrapped up the first week of September. A very big thank to the volunteers that came out to help with this project. The crew really appreciated the extra hand.
We were very lucky to have Hoots for 2 full months, as we originally were only going to have them for 4-5 weeks. Hoots Inc. have done an amazing job transforming this area into a beautiful and exciting bike park. Going into 2019, we need another 4 weeks of work (with dry weather) for grand opening. It is important to note that this area is still in unfinished state and will remain closed until completion. Please respect the closed area signage. Failure to do so may result in damage to areas already built, this will increase cost and delay the opening. Stay tuned in the spring for announcements on volunteer opportunities when construction gets rolling again. 2019 is going to be spectacular!
