Explore Bike Share Expands to Mud Island

September 24, 2018 10:51 AM

Look who's getting that sweet, sweet bike share.

Mud Island saw three Explore Bike Share stations installed Friday along the 1.5-mile stretch of Greenbelt Park.

“We currently have bike share stations at Beale Street Landing, Tom Lee Park, and both sides of Big River Crossing, all of which are extremely popular,” he said. “With the Greenbelt Park stations, we’re continuing the activation of the Memphis riverfront by connecting the wonderful public parklands and activities they have to offer with all of our great neighborhoods.”

Carol Coletta, president and CEO of the Memphis River Parks Partnership, said the stations will help locals and visitors experience the River Line, a 4.75-mile bike and pedestrian trail that runs from the Wolf River Greenway on Mud Island to Big River Crossing. River Line will will formally open November 9th.

“Explore Bike Share has already proven to be a natural fit for the riverfront experience,” she said. “Ridership at Big River Crossing and Tom Lee Park continues to lead all other stations across the city.

"With the debut of the River Line and the expansion of the River Line to include Martin Luther King Riverside Park in South Memphis, the entire Memphis riverfront will be connected in an entirely new way. Explore Bike Share is an easy and accessible option to explore the majesty that is the Mississippi River at Memphis.”

Cyclists can now explore the one-mile loop of the Wolf River Greenway, now built on the north end of Mud Island. But plans are in place to connect that loop to the entire 26-mile-long Greenway once it's complete.

Explore Bike Share will soon install a third bike station at Overton Park near the East Parkway entrance, thanks to the demand and bike usage in the park.

The Explore Bike Share service area currently includes Downtown, South Memphis, Midtown, Orange Mound, and West Memphis, with more neighborhood expansions planned for 2019. Continue Reading

In the past, home owners are restricted to some limited options when they are in search of the best alternatives for natural grass to be installed in their San Diego homes. Artificial grass and huge rock garden are the best options you can consider to be installed in your homes and office.

Some year's back just one variety of artificial grass is available which looks unreal. Things are getting better these days, there are quite pretty number of varieties available when it comes to installing artificial lawns with real and natural feel. This is motivating many people in San Diego to use artificial turf instead of real grass.

Artificial turf fields are on their way to Petaluma, CA. Three artificial turf fields are scheduled to be installed at a Petaluma park. Artificial turf fields will also be installed later at two high schools who are following suit.

Parents have expressed their concerns however concerning risk of bacterial infections, heat conduction, the effects of crumb rubber, and increased risk of physical injuries to players.

A high school in Keizer, OR, is beginning to raise money for a new sports field to be installed with synthetic turf. The high school, McNary High School, says if it raises $1 million, they'll be able to get rid of their irregular and inconvenient natural grass field which has patches of dead grass scattered across its face and replace it with synthetic turf, which will save the school district money and increase usability. The school hopes to start converting their current fields to synthetic turf this summer and to have it completed by the next school year.
