New Trails End Park Playground in Mammoth will open

Trails End Park Playground_fishCELEBRATE THE OPENING OF THE NEW TRAILS END PARK PLAYGROUND Mammoth Lakes, CA – The new Trails End Park Playground will officially open to the public on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Celebrate the opening of this new public amenity with members of Town Council, Recreation Commission, the Town Manager, Town staff, and our special guests, the kids from the Mammoth Husky Club.

“Parks and Recreation makes lives and communities better now and in the future by providing outdoor space and facilities to play and exercise,” stated Stuart Brown, Recreation Manager for the Town of Mammoth Lakes. “This new community amenity will enhance our quality of life by providing a safe place for our children and families to have fun and recreate together.”

trailsendPhase I of the park was completed in November 2012 and included the installation of a playground, perimeter curb, a retaining seat-wall, access path and drinking fountain. Future components of the 5 acre parcel include: 3,000 sq. feet of artificial turf, seating, rock play structure, shade covers, expansion of the world renowned Volcom Brothers Skatepark – Little Brothers Skate Park, a water play area, quarter mile perimeter trail, and a picnic pavilion.
This project is the first phase of completion for Trails End Park and was 100 percent funded from Measure R. Approved by the voters of Mammoth Lakes in 2008, the ordinance imposed a Transactions and Use Tax in the amount of one-half percent for the purpose of funding Recreation, Trails and Parks. Website:

Since the inception of Measure R, over $3 Million dollars has been invested in recreation, parks and trails in Mammoth Lakes. Examples of recreation enhancements in Mammoth Lakes include: Phase 1 construction of the Whitmore Track & Sports Field, ADA lift, vacuum and pool covers for the Whitmore Pool, Nordic trail grooming, special event equipment, construction of a permanent slab and fence at the Mammoth Ice Rink, Biathlon rifles/mats and biathlon feasibility study and gymnastics equipment.

Trails End Park is the only fully planned park located entirely on Town owned property. The park has limited parking but there is access from the Town Loop multi-use path and is served by the Fixed Route Transit System.

      Are you always this negative? With the cops that we had, it wasn’t keeping the druggies away so what difference does that make? A smile on your kids face while swinging and playing is worth it’s weight in gold!

    ferdinand- we need to keep the kids active and give them more things to do , just like this. It’s foolish to criticize the opening of a new park.

    Negativity has become a way of life… for some people. Theyare fearful of everything and angry at everone.
    Entire groups in fact.
    And can you blame them?
    One political kingpin accused the current administration of conspiring to cover up the Boston bombings, another group believes the government is conspiring to take away all their guns, still another philosophy holds that if same-sex couples marry, it will be the end of the world.

      Ferdinand, no need to have it out on the new children’s park. Criticizing is one thing, the “i” this and “i” that is hardly beneficial to the community you are apart of.

      Is this the best a childless skier can do?

      I have to say it,I agree with ferdinand……Look at what happened with the park in Bishop…..a place for bad kids to go,raise hell and get high…..not all,but a lot.Last time I went there,which was quite a while ago,a saw a couple drug deals going on,heard a lot of vulgar language from a group of kids no older than 14 smoking cigarettes,and pulling out cans of beers from their long,black overcoats.When I go to a park in Bishop now,I go to that little one out of town by the creek on west line street.

    ouch,i guess i could stop using protection and suck up state money to take care of my little mistakes

  7. Buffalo Bilious May 9, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    Haha! Even you at one time were one of those ‘little mistakes’.

    Had you been in Mammoth at the time I can tell a new (or old) playground would have served you well.

    Anyhow, don’t mean to create a rift between kids and childless adults, just didn’t understand your comments. *yawn
