    • Trail UpdatePlay Ground-I was talking with a friend who lives just around the corner from the playground and he said it is closed for good. He does not know any details yet.
      Lets hope it gets up and running again. Great place to practice.

    • Trail UpdateUnfortunate But True....-Yes, it does appear that "The Playground" is indeed no more. No, it wasn't "World Class", but it was a cool place to hang out and catch some air. Even if the "reality" of the track and leasing situation didn't live up to the "dream" or some of the owner's claims, I personally think it was a great accomplishment. Maybe someone soon will pick up where the Playground left off?

    • Trail UpdatePlaytime Is Over-The place is for people like you who dont have a clue. I cant handle the course? I wish i was as good as you. You are a moron. I can jump 3 feet high. That is as high as you can jump on the highest jump of the three. The place is sad. WTF .You dont know anything about what goes on at the playground so shut up, please. Im not bullshiting about what i wrote. I guess people should know whats going on out there. The guy who ownes the land thinks mike underwood has norba insurance, the place has no insurance. Im sorry for being a munch .

    • Trail UpdateYou're A Munch!-Hey buddy, WTF are you talking about? Why even suggest someone trespass on private property and steal someone else's jump? You're a moron. Go ride somewhere else if you can't handle the course.

    • Trail UpdateThe Place Is Lame-This place has three jumps they work on. They rent this place for 400 a month and hasnt paid rent in 9 months. This place will be closed soon. There is a new mtb park opening in fraiser park in april. The playground looks like a dumpsite. They will lie to get you out there, the place sucks and is going downhill. I dont know why you sign a norba release at the gate ,they dont have current insurance. Hey he saving a few bucks not paing insurance or not paying rent or not paying the other bills or not paying the people that built the place. just take the cash and lie. I heard mike underwood want to turn the place into a used car lot. You can ride this place during the week before 2:00 because nobody is out there. There is a new wood ramp to steal.

    • Trail UpdateTook my new M1 on Saturday with a few others & must say this place is all about Jumping doubles, step ups, berms & big jumps, oh yeah, the dual slalom course is pretty cool too. The Intense rocked this place, there was'nt a double or gap jump that it could'nt handle. I would highly recommend this place for anyone considering racing the dual or D.H. I would have to say that it won't be much fun for riders without good to excellant double jumping skills as that is what the runs mostly consist of, if you go, take a friend so you can race the slalom course with them, it's a marked blue/red course just like NORBA races & just as difficult

    • Trail UpdateThe Playground-Occasionally open Saturdays from about 9:30 until 4:30. However often closed when there is a local race like the AM Cup. Turnout has been low lately due to numerous factors, so who knows if the operator will open it any given day or not. Since you are in TO, go by and check it out. However note that the entrance is actually the dirt doubletrack about 200 yards to the West of the 999 mailbox. The place can be cool, but there are lots of issues.

    • Trail UpdateMtb Playground , Simi Valley-I recently visited this place on a saturday afternoon. I saw the trail and all the jumps but i did not see any people around. I came back later that day there was still no one around. Any info about this place being open on a different day or if its closed for good, would be well appreciated.
