Excitement, concern for latest Carlington mountain bike park plans

By Trevor Pritchard, CBC News Ottawa, May 22, 2018

Carlington residents will soon get a look at plans for an outdoor mountain bike facility at a local park — and there's both excitement and trepidation about what they'll see.

In September 2016, Ottawa city council approved a proposal put forward by the Ottawa Mountain Bike Association (OMBA) to build the facility on top of a former ski hill in Carlington Park.

(...)Both Brulé and Winkel said Carlington Hill makes perfect sense for the outdoor, free-of-charge facility, given its proximity to bike trails and public transit and the fact it's in the middle of an inner city suburb with a large number of young people.
