We’re finishing up work on the enhancements to the Belle Isle Skilla Area and need some help.  This Saturday we’ll be doing some clean-up, dirt shaping and hand tamping.

If it’s dry enough and get enough help, we’ll be able to ride the new features after the work day.

Meet us on Belle Isle at 9am with some gloves and sturdy shoes – we’ll bring the tools.

Thanks!

Gillies Dirt Jumps

Earlier this year an MOU was signed with the City of Richmond making the Gillies Creek Dirt Jumps (located behind the BMX track) a legitimate park facility.  We’re hosting a couple of events to cleanup the area and involve the community in the future of the dirt jumps.

MARCH 31 – Community Vision Day hosted on site for community feedback regarding jump park area and renovation/development from 5pm-6pm.  Please come out and meet with rvaMORE and the builders to help with the vision for this dirt jump area.  Now is the time to give the city and rvaMORE your thoughts.

Buttermilk Trail Work

This Saturday we’ll be continuing a re-route on Buttermilk.  The section east of the boardwalk with rotten stairs is a text book fall line trail.  High speeds and poor sight lines make for safety issue, the boardwalk is rotting from underneath and the section between the hill and the boardwalk is a perennial mud spot. The new trail will routed on the hillside.  We expect the reroute to take a couple of week.  This week we’ll finish benching and build a bridge.

This weekend we’ll be fixing up a muddy spot on the North Bank Trail.  As you pass through the fence between Texas Beach and the cemetery, there is a spot that stays muddy long after the rest of the trail has dried, so we’ll be arming this section to keep it from getting rutted out.
