Sugar Creek Gateway Trail Complete

 The Future of Recess!  This is what we like to call a “Progressive Playground” 🙂  The 2000′ gateway trail flanks two grade schools, Sugar Creek and Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, Bentonville, AR.   The trail was designed for the new bike program that is now being integrated into the Bentonville Public School Curriculum.  How cool is that.  This is the second school project that we have completed in the past year.  The other at Lincoln Jr. High, a pumptrack style trail, is only a half mile away and will be connected to this one by way of Park Springs Park (a 2 mile trail we completed in 2010).  Some of the highlights of this new playground are around 300′ of skinny log rides & ladders, a timber bridge, a downhill flow section, a stone bridge, and multiple rollers and berms–this trail is like a linear pumptrack with alternate lines leading to elevated features.  Not to fear,  all the elevated features are cushioned on both sides with a thick layer of mulch, should someone fall.  So grab your kids and Go Ride!
