We are planning a workday on Sunday July 13th to repair sections of Denny's Trail (the white trail near the North Park Pool). This is an awesome trail that was built by Denny and improved by PTAG 10 years ago. Sections are very muddy and to address this a re-route of short section and some rock armoring is planned. Please come out and help us. We will start at 9AM. Bring gloves and boots.
The North Park Freeride Area is open! PTAG volunteers have been out to do much needed work on the Dr J Trail and the Skills Park. We re-routed the middle section berm and put in a new bridge on the Dr J Trail - flow is much improved! Lots of dirt work has been done! The Skills Park requires ongoing dirtwork to keep the jumps in shape.
Frick Park has cut this short path for their small utility vehicles because they routinely have trouble providing service for big organized park events near Blue Slide Playground. The new path will be coincident with a short fast section of Iron Grate and hopefully it will (eventually) be well enough compacted that it can be traveled on confidently.
To our past, present and future volunteers, PTAG says, "Thank You!" It's not an easy job doing trail work but our volunteers make it fun and aren't afraid to get dirty. Actually, most of our volunteers like getting dirty!
From PTAG's Frick Park Steward (Jon Lewis): Thank you volunteers! Thanks to a very motivated group of intrepid volunteers we had a successful April 5th Workday in Frick Park.
Venture Outdoors is graciously providing a 10% discount on ticket purchases to PTAG constituents.
Don't miss this exciting two-night event of awe-inspiring action!

Fantastic attendance at the October 6, 2013 Hartwood Acres Park Gala Workday. Many of the defined work areas received much needed TLC.
Thanks to all the support from Len and Karl, PTAG board members, PTAG stewards of other parks and all that volunteered their time and energy to make this park better for everyone!
