One of the more popular parking and unloading zones at Jubilee Park, commonly known as the Motorcycle Park, will soon be closed to make way for the future expansion of Pickles Butte Sanitary Landfill. Landfill staff has already started installing a new fence around the southernmost parking lot at Jubilee Park and expect to have it completed in the next several days. Once the fence is installed, the southernmost parking area will no longer be accessible by vehicle. That means those wishing to access the trail system at Jubilee Park for motorbike, ATV/UTV, and horseback riding will need to park and unload at the designated parking lot on the corner of Deer Flat Rd. and Perch Rd (see map above).
“We’ve had an expansion plan in place for a long time and now we’re starting to put that plan into action,” said David Loper, Director of Pickles Butte Sanitary Landfill. “This initial phase will involve a lot of heavy equipment working in the area near Jubilee Park. So in the interest of public safety, we decided it was best to close it off to vehicles.”
Notices have also been posted along the entrance to Jubilee Park to inform citizens of the upcoming changes.
