The Sheridan City Council recently adopted a conceptual plan for Thorn-Rider Park that would do away with the BMX track that's located just adjacent to the south entrance of the park. Sheridan Recreation District Director Richard Wright says that there have been several community members that have expressed interest in keeping the program alive.
Recent developments to the BMX track in the town of Douglas will provide much benefit to the program here in Sheridan.
Wright said that they have put a call into the City on a possible location near the City's waste water treatment plant just off of Fort Road. He also stated that the number of riders in the program have increased this year, and that the track is used by many others that aren't in the Rec. District's BMX program.
