MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar) – A new trail park is coming to the Basin. Midland City Council approved those plans today. Council approved the agreement to build a multi-trail park today.
The property is located next to the Harris Field Fire Training Center in Southeast Midland.
The park will have a seven-mile-long trail and it will allow people to mountain bike, run and hike. The project will be funded entirely by private funds.
The Permian Basin Bicycle Association has a goal to raise 150,000 dollars to build this park and construction will start soon.
“I’d say probably in about one month or less, we will have flagged the trail and we will be getting volunteers to help us clear the brush, clear the ground,” said Permian Basin Bicycle Association Director Stephen Mitchell. “Make it easier for the trail builder to come in with a mini-excavator and start building the trail.”
Now in order to have access to the park, you will have to join the PBBA. The trail is expected to be open to members by June.
