OK Brian, where do you propose this tower be located at Bradley Park. Before an observation tower, or maybe in conjuction with,I feel the trails for walking need to be marked and measured loops should be designated. Get the people in shape before climbing that tower.
Maybe the city could be persuaded to replace those ugly swing sets with something that would be much more fitting for the setting.<p>[ August 28, 2001: Message edited by: Deb Richardson ]
Deb, I couldn't agree with you more which is why the hogsback cross attack race was hosted. People wanted the trails fixed, I wanted a place to run and ride my bike. I took the appropriate steps and raised money for the newly founded Bradley Park Trail Crew. The race I just held raised money to get the equipment I needed to clean up the trails and continue with the project. A lot of people have many "wants" for the park...well I went and did something about it by going through the appropriate channels. I applaud your comments Deb and if you enjoy snowshoeing you will be able to do that this winter on a trail that's marked and mapped!
I think a observation deck along the hogsback would be very nice if done in the right spot, I've mentioned in a previous post that you would have to have the tower a ridiculous height (if you don't plan on removing trees) just to top the treeline, but Ken I see what you're onto and like the idea and believe it's part of the bradley park concept as well.
