Thank you Mayor Nutter for repairing the MLK Path!

The MLK path in Fairmount Park is smoother! Please take a moment to express your thanks to Mayor Nutter for this successful improvement to the Fairmount Park loop.

The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia asked Mayor Michael Nutter and Fairmount Park to make some badly-needed repairs to the path where tree roots had heaves in the pavement.

During September and October, Fairmount Park staff worked between Montgomery Drive and the Disabled Rowers Boathouse by pulling up asphalt, trimming the tree roots back and re-paving the path. In all, they made 20 repair patches. Please thank Mayor Nutter and Fairmount Park for making your ride better!

How about fixing the washed out sections of the Fairmount Park path at the east end of the Schuylkill River path that have been in disrepair for 3 years? Those are dangerous and have caused many accidents.

Thank you, Mayor. We really enjoyed the Bike Philly 35 mile loop last month! Well Done - see you next year.
