As part of the South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association’s (SSSNA) grant award to improve South Side Park, the organization is partnering with Mount Washington CDC’s Emerald View Trail Corps to improve the hiking trails in the park.

Pending final city approval, Emerald View Trail Corps were slated to begin working on trail improvements in South Side Park on July 7 and work approximately three weeks. The trail corps will be working on sections of Ol’ Renziehausen the trail starting at Quarry Field continuing up to Arlington Field and then down to Bandi Shaum Community Garden.

These trail improvements and re-routes will help make the trail system less steep, more user-friendly, and more stable from a water management and erosion control perspective.

The SSSNA is asking for help to keep South Side Park safe by reporting illegal activity including camping and motor biking to 911. It is illegal to camp or operate a motorized dirt bike in a city park (City code 473.03-473.04).

Those with questions about the trail program should email the SSSNA at:
