New gates on Pumpkinvine

Gates on the south side of SR 4.

In late March, the Goshen Park Dept. installed new control gates at SR 4 and CR 28 to prevent unauthorized motor vehicles from entering the trail. The gate arms are separated enough that it is easy to drive around them, and they can be removed for a large event like the Pumpkinvine Bike Ride or Maple City Walk.

Goshen Parks has installed similar gates on the Winona Trail at Kercher Road.

Gates at CR 28.

These gates replace the swining gates that have been in place for 10 years. The problem with them was that it required someone to open and shut them — a real drain on limited staff resources.
