1.9 Miles of New Bike Path in Middletown, Ohio

The Middletown Bike path is part of the Great Miami Recreational Trails (GMRRT) which connects to trails in Montgomery and Miami Counties. Here is a section of the new bike path extension:
Ok, this video is incredibly boring, but it is a significant bike path event in Middletown, Ohio.

Middletown Mayor thanked everyone for coming and acknowledged the council members who were there including Vice  Mayor Jim Armuruster, Anita Scott Jones, Josh Laubach, and AJ smith. Mayor Mulligan said, “This section we are  dedicating today is Section 3,  1.9 miles long and begins at the current termination point, St. Rt. 4 and Carmody  boulevard.”  This section cost approximately $433,000.

Vice Mayor Jim Armbruster said, “Certain people I want to thank for making this possible of course is the Ohio  Department of Natural Resources, Middletown Community Foundation, Arthur Harvey Foundation and the Barnitz Fund,
Miami Conservatory District…”

The Middletown bike path now is 6.8 miles from Carmody (ST RT 4) to Trenton, St RT 73 just east of the Great Miami  River bridge.

The next 2.1 mile section going north will stop at the Franklin city limits. This future portion will be funded by Energy  efficiency and conservation block grant (EECBG) funds* in the amount of nearly $500,000.

    I am a bike rider and a 30 year middletown resident,this bike path entrance is now almost impossible to use. And not safe for young children or males. Just like the park that use to be open just a little ways down 73 from this place . The residents of this neighborhood called it the pickle park now we call this place pickle park 2. I never see many one policing this place, I never see a cop or park officer on the bike path riding or walking. The trash is awful and I have taking it on myself to try and keep it clean, but lot is always full and I am going to end up offending someone with my big mouth. Warm weather is right around the corner and I hope someone reads this.

    I was wrong, the middletown police are well aware of that’s happening at this bike path entrance. I had a talk with one and she enlighten me and now I wish to help. I have adopted this park and plan on keeping it clean and with the help of the police department and good cops like Kathy it will happen. This is our city folks and the police department can not do it all. that’s why I challenge each and every one of the adults in this city to get up off the couch and get with it man. Peace

    Today I saw I bike and 4 trucks and a tractor spraying poison in the air, as I went by I could smell and taste this crap, man its great getting outside in Middletown. Half of the guys I pass in the trucks are upset that they have to move. I believe warnings should be posted about these vehicles because they are dangerous. Truth, Peace
