AVON, Ind. (WISH) — A new feature at an Avon park has radio controlled vehicle enthusiasts traveling from all over central Indiana to try it out.
A track specifically for RC vehicles is now open and gaining a lot of attention at Avon Town Hall Park. Town officials say TRAK 36 is the only free and public track of it’s kind in Hendricks County and most of central Indiana. A temporary one proved popular at an RC festival last year, inspiring the permanent version. Now, many are hoping to organize races and more events at the track.
“We’ve had tons of people the couple times I’ve been out here. Families, people walking through the park, I think it’s really great,” Chris Fulton, who travels from Brownsburg to use the track, said.
TRAK 36 is open, along with the park, from dawn until dusk every day. It’s located near the park on the east side of the park. The track is 60 by 120 feet and while gas remote controlled vehicles are available, only battery-powers versions are allowed.
The town plans to hold a ribbon cutting for the track on April 28, once they finish some of the landscaping. The track will be maintained by Hoosier RC Racers Club.
The Spring Fling RC Festival at Town Hall Park is set for May 7.
