One of the better parks for mtb'ing, Otter Creek Park, in KY, is closed as of 1/1/09. The city of Louisville was responsible for the park and claims to have been losing $500k/yr maintaining the park. There have been talks of other entities taking over the park--such as Dept of Fish and Wildlife, or Ft.Knox, but noone yet is named as park admin. And no guarantee that it would remain open to mtb'ing if (when?) another entity acquires the park. Hopefully, few out here have to be faced with losing areas due to this economy.
