*UPDATE: Meeting went very well and plans are being finalized to move forward with the plans listed below, along with a second phase that will connect beginner trails at Castle Hayne to Blue Clay Bike Park!
As you may or may not know, New Hanover County is working to add beginner mountain biking trails to Castle Hayne Park. There is a meeting this coming Monday to discuss moving some funds into place to make this a reality. Here is an invitation from Tara Duckworth, New Hanover County Parks and Gardens Director, inviting any of our club members to attend.
There will be a public meeting on Monday, March 4th from 6-7:30pm at the Wrightsboro Elementary School cafeteria to discuss plans to potentially move park bond funds initially allocated for Wrightsboro Park to Castle Hayne Park (and sell the Wrightsboro parcel which is about 2.5 miles from the new CH entrance). We will have the basic design for Castle Hayne expansion which includes beginner mountain bike trails to share. Just wanted to keep you all in the loop. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks, Tara
