New park in Marseilles IL

hey guys, thought you may want to see some of this. a new park in Marseilles IL is opening up Very shortly!!
it has some very cool terrain, and is deifnatly challenging enough!

I have been out there almost every weekend since the begging of feb helpign cut trails in the park. they are geting cut tight and very hard. it will be lots of fun, and defiantly be worth your time to come check it out soon.
the name is the " The Cliffs"
sarge has been out a few times, so i hope he states what he thinks of the area

Re: New park in Marseilles IL

Yeah, the place is going to be great for sure . The trails aren't for the weak at heart , not much more that "quad size" . There isn't hardly any flat areas , it's either up or down or though a ravine of some sort . The woods are very tight as we haven't cut many trees and don't plan too either . The place is fairly remote looking and should stay that way . Hard to find around here but it should shape up pretty well .

AWESOME!

Anyone have any more info as to a website, or contact number, or date it will be open, or info on the lawsuits the neighbors have been rumored to be making regarding the parks ambiguous zoning?

Re: New park in Marseilles IL

The parks zoning isn't really an issue . The viscous way the neighbors acted at the hearings is an issue . People in this area are pretty narrow-minded for sure , they need to learn that the world doesn't revolve around them . Most of those neighbors rode their quads on that property for years , now it's just not exclusively theirs to play on . Opening date should be pretty soon as far as I know , all involved on doing the trail work , ect are putting in a lot of hours to get it done quickly . Not sure of an exact date yet , might hear something soon though ....

Re: New park in Marseilles IL

When you say "viscious way" are you saying I missed a Jerry-Springeresque presentation? What all went on at those things?

Re: New park in Marseilles IL

The board meetings were terrible , they didn't really address the issues but instead attacked the developer on a personal level . They tried their best to irritate him but he stood his ground and was very polite and did nothing but try to address their concerns . He still is going way out of his way to please his neighbors , almost to the point it's irritating . These people are vindictive , I'd expect vandalism and such acts to start soon , time will tell . In the mean time , we have a local park being built and folks are having fun working on it . I just hope it all works out and goes big ...
