Wow Sundance! Wednesday & Thursday are Busy!

Sorry for the delay in posting!  Better late than no post at all-

News Notes –

Soon the Main office will release info regarding RVA and storage reservations for the 2022/2023 season.  We will provide details once they are released.

Another report of a “near miss” involving a bicycle.  If you are an avid rider or just use your bike as a mode of transportation in the park, please obey the stop signs.  It takes only a couple of seconds more to stop and proceed on your way.  Keep in mind Sundance roadways are not for training for the Tour de France.  Golf carts, scooters and vehicles do need to stop at all marked intersections as well.

Walkers and runners please carry and use a  flashlight as you navigate through the park during the evening and early morning hours.  Wearing bright colors or reflective gear also helps to be seen by vehicles.
