A mountain bike trail winding through the wooded area of Nall Park in northern Roeland Park is under consideration by the city’s parks committee.
Nall Park, which sits at the end of Nall Avenue, has 10.47 acres with much of it heavily wooded. The wooded section includes a ravine on the east side of the park that separates it from the nearby Boulevard Apartments. Across Nall to the west is a Johnson County wastewater treatment plant that lies in Mission.
The potential for a looping single-track mountain bike trail is being pursued in conversations with Urban Trail Co., a local company that has collaborated around the metro on more than 100 miles of bike trails since 2001. About 1.5 miles of natural surface are suitable for a single track trail at Nall Park, according to parks chair Jennifer Provyn.
