Park Lay-out map
This image shows the initial Park Lay-out plan aerial view with markers
for the approximate location of the photographer (in black capital letters)
in each picture shown below. Also shown is the approximate locations of
the track, building, parking area, sign, entrance and other items from
above. With this image and the pictures below you may be able to get a
mental image of the property and items to be built.

On January 28, 2007 it was time to start looking at the land for the new
track at Trosper Park. In order to get a handle on things we decided to
get some pictures for future reference. These pictures are shown as a
thumbnail image below with links to both a medium size and full size
image. Files sizes are shown with each link.
It was a nice cool day with bright clear skies, things are a little wet
since there was snow on the ground earlier in the day.
A - Center looking west
Pan looking west, north is the right side of image and south is the left
side of the image. Looking in the center slightly to right there is a
line of trees, those trees will be on the north side of the race track.
Also looking to the center you would be looking down the 2nd straight of
the track. You can see a truck parked in the driveway in the left
side of the image the truck is parked at the entrance gate. Shown are
the old electrical service poles for the old BMX track, the new track
will be between those poles.
B - Beside gate looking north
This picture was taken from the east of the entrance gate standing on a
pile of dirt beside the gate. To the left is looking north and to the
right is east. From here the track will be located about 100 feet to the
north, toward the pole in the center of this picture. Lots of open space
for a race track! The land is somewhat level and there is a small amount
of dirt we will be using from the site. Most of the dirt we will use to
build the track will have to be trucked in to the site. The area on the
right side of this picture will be terraced and landscaped, all of the
piles of dirt will be used for landscaping.
C - Gate looking east
If you stood at the entrance gate to the property this is what you would
have seen. The left side is north and the right side is east. This is
several feet west of the image above 'B'. You can see the berm on the
east side of the gate (far right bottom). Just to the left of the berm
is a pile of dirt, that is about where our new sign will be located.
From here our building will be located about 200 away between the gate
and the tower in the middle top of this picture.
C Medium size (2.3meg). C Full size (2.8meg).
G - Looking west
The picture pans from the southwest (left of image) to the north (right
of image) from about the middle (east to west) of the properties Grand
Boulevard frontage. As in most of these pictures you can see the truck
parked in the entrance. This view shows the open area where the track
will be built. Also near the far right are 2 individual trees with a
bald spot to there left, to their right is a evergreen (cedar) tree.
The space between those trees is where our building will be located.
The location where this picture was taken is about 12 feet higher in
elevation (uphill) from the entrance gate. The area from the middle of
this picture to the right and between the truck and the photographer is
the area we will be terracing and landscaping.
G Medium size (2.6meg). G Full size (3.4meg).
These last images are 360 degree panoramic views. The images are from
the north edge of the open area where the track will be built. These are
large image files and may take some time to download if you are using a
dial up connection. The medium size files would download somewhat faster
on dial up.
D - Near staging area
This image was taken from about where staging will be located then the
new track is built. On the left is looking east about 1/3 of the way
right you can see the truck almost hidden by a pile of dirt. That pile
of dirt disappeared just before we got the lease for this property. At
about 1/2 way from left to right you are looking down what will be the
left side of the 1st straight on the track, near the 3rd power pole from
the left. All 4 poles are visible in this image. We will be using 2 of
those existing poles for lighting in the future.
D Medium size (6.5meg). D Full size (8.3meg).
E - Near middle of 1st straight
Here we are standing by an old electric pole, the 3rd from the left to
right in the image 'D' above. The left of the image is looking south
where the truck is parked and about the middle from left to right is
looking north into some close trees. About 3/4 of the way from the left
to right we are looking back to the east where the start hill will be
located. This image is from about half way down the right side of the
1st straight of the track.
E Medium size (6.2meg). E Full size (9.4meg).
F - Near 3rd turn
Here we are standing by an old electric pole, the 2rd from the left to
right in the image 'D' above. The far left of the image is looking south
where the truck is parked, the very front of truck is visible in the
full size image. To the left of the power pole is the front of the truck
and the entrance gate. About 1/3 of the way across from left to right is
a power pole so close you could touch it. That pole is about where the
center of the 3rd turn will be located on the track. About 2/3 of the
way across from left to right another power pole, that pole is the
location where the above picture 'E' was taken. About 3/4 of the
way across from left to right is a cell tower in the background, to the
left of the tower are some short trees and farther left are a few
evergreen (cedar) trees. This is the location of our building, from the
view we would be looking at the northwest side of the building. This
picture shows a lot of snow on the ground and on the north sides of
some piles of dirt.
