The Parks and Recreation Department encourages Lincoln residents to comment on the future of the Pioneers Park bridle path system. The draft Pioneers Park Bridle Paths Action Plan, available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov, was developed in 2017 following a community meeting and survey.
The plan includes maintenance standards and practices, signage, webpage information, extension of the bridle path system and opportunities for volunteer involvement. Comments can be made through February 9 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments also may be mailed to or dropped off at the Parks and Recreation Administration Office, 3140 "N" Street, Suite 300, Lincoln, NE 68510. Paper copies of the draft plan are also available at that office.
"Bridle paths have been available for horseback riding in Pioneers Park for many decades," said Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson. "We appreciate the opportunity to work with horse enthusiasts to improve and expand this recreation opportunity in the park."
The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will consider recommending adoption of the plan during its regular monthly meeting at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 8 at the Parks and Recreation Administration Office. Advisory Board meetings are open to the public.
