GRANVILLE, OHIO (December 1, 2022) The Licking Park District has installed a new bike trail parking lot in Johnstown and expanded a parking lot at Lobdell Reserve in Alexandria.
In Johnstown, the newly constructed Concord Road parking lot will serve as additional parking to access the TJ Evans Bike Trail. The Thomas J. Evans Foundation generously funded the construction of this parking lot. The LPD manages most of the paved bike trails in Licking County and is responsible for creating and maintaining parking access areas. Safe, accessible parking is essential for ease of mobility as well as pedestrian and bicycle safety.
At Lobdell Reserve, the parking lot at the disc golf course off of Battee Road was expanded to accommodate increasing numbers of disc golf players, trail users, and park program attendees. New perimeter fencing was recently installed and future improvements at this location include the planned addition of a permanent restroom facility.
These projects are made possible by the tax levy dollars provided by Licking County residents. We appreciate your support! The Licking Park District continuously monitors and makes improvements to your park system.
