ATVs At State Park?

Aug 17, 2012

The 100 people who attended a meeting this week about how to revitalize the struggling Burr Oak State Park near Athens were evenly split over a a plan to turn the park into a haven for ATV enthusiasts.

 Some said it would attract more people, while others said it would bring noise, potential injuries and land destruction. ATVs are currently banned from trails at all state parks, although they are allowed in designated areas in some state forests.
