Matthews' new Sportsplex, Possible trails

Some of you on here may be familiar with Matthews' new sportsplex the is roughly located in the south west corner of the intersection of Ind Blvd and I-475.  It is accessible from E Charles St/Tank Town Rd, across from the Matthews Public Works facility.  The property this was built on has a lot of trails on it that were shared by 4 x 4, quads and bikes, illegally. The building of the sportsplex left a lot of woods, which still has a lot of trail on it, but not sure if it is legitimate for riding.  I saw a Char-Meck P&R truck there, so I assume it is part of the group.  Has anybody in the looked into legitimizing and expanding the trails there?

--EDIT--

I found the (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links) on the Meck P&R site.  It looks like they have plans to fully utilize all of the land, but only phase 1 has been completed.  I wonder what the master plan time frame is.

Doesn't look like a whole lot of woods left after complete build out.

From the GIS map, it appears that a lot of the trails were also on the parcel ( (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)) directly north of it, which is private property. So much for that idea.

BITD we could leave the Rock Store and ride jeep / dirt bike trails all the way too Crown Pointe, 4 mile loop there and back.........back then nobody could shut down a trail, we went by if your rear tire could roll thru the U brake, it was good too go.
