Smyrna to install multi-use trails, bike park

Fully funded by a state grant, a $320,376 multi-use trail system will be installed at North Cooper Lake Park in Smyrna.

The Smyrna City Council voted April 15 to award the contract to American Ramp Company (doing business as Progressive Bike Ramps) of Joplin, Missouri which was only one of nine firms to submit a proposal successfully.

For the new trail system at the park, 4201 Cooper Lake Road, Smyrna, the city was awarded the 2017 Recreational Trails Program grant that is administered by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Included will be nine trails for the multi-use trail system and a bicycle skills park with a bicycle playground.

“The company has been involved in the design process since the initial grant application and has provided an innovative and turn key solution for the project,” said Smyrna Purchasing Manager Kelly Brown in an April 9 memo to Smyrna Parks and Recreation Director Richard Garland.
