2014 Jersey Design Contest

    WBP Trailwork

    Installing new semi-permanent signage at Westbrook Park.

    New semi-permanent signage being installed at WBP.

    Things are moving along at Westbrook Park. FORC has partnered with the City of Dewitt to design, build, and maintain a system of singletrack trail at the park for use by mountain bikes as well as hikers and other foot traffic.

    Three loops are now signed and open for riding which brings the total amount of singletrack trail built so far to 2.3 miles. However, we still need your help! Keep an eye on the Westbrook Park sub forum and the FORC Facebook page for announcements of upcoming trail work days. Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who have already put their sweat into the trail system!

    Sylvan Island Bridge Closure

    Update (4/12/14:) Moline has secured $1.14M for construction of a new bridge at Sylvan Island. More details here.

    Update (9/10/13): Missman Inc. Structural Assessment of Sylvan Island Bridge (PDF 5.1 MB)

    UPDATE: A few articles with details about yesterdays Park Board Meeting concerning the Sylvan Island bridge.



     

    The city of Moline has deemed the bridge providing access to the Sylvan Island natural area and trail network structurally unsound and unsafe for public use. Gates have been erected blocking access to the island via the bridge. The trails on the island and the island itself will remain open to the public but will only be accessible by boat.
