The Ascarate Park has so much potential but is neglected by the County Commissioners. Their priorities are elsewhere . The lake has much vegetation and not restock frequently with fish. Picnic area are in bad shape. If you golf, thats the only part of the lake that has much emphasis creating a great course. I have seen better county parks outside the El Paso Area. Overall rating: Unsatisfactory
19 miles as of today. Pics in commenta #epcounty19challenge
March 2020 Rides (NE Easy Street and Downtown Fun Ride) 9am Saturday March 7, 2020 NE Easy Fun Bicycle Ride Meet at Tobin Park (in front of rec center) on Railroad to start and ride on low traffic, non-climbing neighborhood streets. Perfect for brand new riders, beginners, seniors, and riders just wanting to cruise. Ride will be about 8 miles long, includes few breaks, and about an hour long. 7pm Thursday March 26, 2020 (Lights required) Downtown Easy Fun Bicycle Ride Meet at San Jacinto Plaza for a fun bicycle ride through Downtown and up into Sunset Heights. Both rides are on street, mellow paced, and recommend helmet to use for safety. Downtown ride requires you to have front and rear lights, as it'll be dark. Also check out SunCity Cruiser Rides and Curious Jorge Rides Again FB pages. Want to host a ride? Let me know and post it, I'll share it! RIDE YOUR BICYCLE EL PASO!
