Bike park celebrates a sign of things to come in South Lake Tahoe
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — Presenters at last Saturday’s bike park opening called the park a major accomplishment in the further development of recreation opportunities in South Lake Tahoe. While the project was met with numerous delays between its proposal and construction, it was viewed by many as the first successful collaborative effort between the city and the community in recent memory.
“This is the first project that I’ve had people come to me and say, ‘What can I do to help?’” said Jim Marino, the city’s assistant director of public works, during his speech during the opening.
Pete Fink, the vice chair of the parks and recreation commission, agreed, calling it a big step for the city and community working together to make South Tahoe a better recreation destination. The bike park is a major step in the city’s parks and recreation master plan.
