Monroe Crossings Park Open for BMX Racing and More....

The City's Public Works department has completed a recreational trail and playground at Monroe Crossings Park on Rt. 63. The future soccer area has been seeded and will hopefully be ready for play next spring.
Also, Monroe BMX's new new board of directors (along with help from parents) have finished the BMX race track and installed a starting gate at the park. Races are now being held there most weekends.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources provided a grant for a recreational trail through the park, and grants from Duke Energy and the United Way provided funding for the Born Learning signposts. Aimed at preschoolers and their parents or caregivers, Born Learning areas provide suggestions that facilitate play and discussion while visiting the park.
Rachael's Place is a new playground that has been installed near the Born Learning Trail.
Monroe BMX has been actively improving the track and holding races. Track Director Eric Walsh has races planned on Sundays throughout October (except Oct. 11). Registration is from 4:00-5:00 p.m. with races following. Practices are on Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. until dark.
The track is sanctioned through the National Bicycle League (NBL) and is suitable for Rookie, Novice and Expert class riders.
