The City of South Lake Tahoe’s Parks and Recreation Commission presented a Proclamation to the Bijou Bike Park Association at today’s City Council meeting. The Association is being recognized for their work in helping to plan and build the Bijou Bike Park.
“The City of South Lake Tahoe Parks and Recreation Commission would like to publically recognize the Bijou Bike Park Association for its efforts to construct a world class recreational facility in the heart of our community,” said Scott Valentine, City of South Lake Tahoe Parks and Recreation Commissioner.
Valentine continued with “This is a successful model that demonstrates how community input and public/private partnerships can facilitate recreational improvements. The Commission commends the Bijou Bike Park Association, which proposed an idea, raised funds, and helped to create, construct, and maintain a facility that enhances recreational amenities and the quality of life for the residents of South Lake Tahoe and its visitors.”
The Bijou Bike Park is identified in the Parks, Trails and Recreation Master Plan as a low cost, high value amenity and is free to the public.
“Thank you council for your support, resources and staff time; we are getting world class athletes from all over the world as well as the GoPro team who are riding with our local youth,” said Bijou Bike Park Association member Amy Fish.
