(Maricopa County) Join the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department on Thursday, July 26 as the department unveils the proposed Lake Pleasant Regional Park Trails Master Plan.
“The park currently has 2.8-miles of trails at the lake. If the proposed trail system is adopted, park visitors will be able to hike from Highway 74 at the front of the park to the Castle Creek Bridge which is located on the northern end of the park,” stated Chairman Max Wilson, Maricopa County Board of Supervisor, District 4.
“The concept of building a trail system in the park has been in the park master plan for years. I’m really excited that it will soon come to fruition so we can offer the community a recreational service that has been rather limited at the lake,” added R.J. Cardin, Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department Director.
The public meeting has been scheduled for July 26 at the Desert Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant located at 41402 N. 87th Avenue in Peoria from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to begin the review process. The public comment period will conclude at 5 p.m. on August 26, 2012. Once the process has been completed, comments will be reviewed and incorporated, where appropriate.
