The 2012 Pro Cycling Challenge will be speeding through town on Friday, August 24th! Exact details remain to be announced, but you can expect traffic to be impacted along highway 24 (not just in town, but east and west of here as well), and some really fast bike speeds as they zip through Woodland Park that day.
Will a pool ever be built in Woodland Park? While some people think it'll be built right next to the highway 24 bypass (ha ha), there's a lot of public support for having an aquatic center in town and I'd say there's a good chance it'll be built...eventually. The latest good news is that Dana Duncan donated three acres of land (located at highway 67 & Kelleys road) for the project (read about it in the Courier). All that's needed now is the money to build and operate it, no small task certainly but at least we're a step closer now.
You can follow the progress of this project over at the Woodland Aquatic Project's website.
