Resident Spotlight: Mike “Odie” Park

5/25/2016 12:00:00 AM


The Estrella community thrives thanks to the hard work and dedication of its residents and their hands-on approach to creating a great place to live. The Estrella Trails Committee is a prime example of the impact that residents are able to make in the community. Committee members devote their free time to building new trails while maintaining Estrella’s extensive network of existing trails to ensure an enjoyable experience for all residents. One particular member, Mike Park, otherwise known as “Odie,” saw an opportunity to help make the trails at Estrella a top-notch amenity for outdoor enthusiasts and decided to join the Trails Committee, with a little push from his committee friends. Odie was kind enough to answer some questions in order to shed some light on the wonderful work of the Estrella Trails Committee and to share his story and connection with the community.

Estrella continues to grow and we're excited about two recent additions to the communities’ recreational repertoire.  The Estrella Trails Committee recently completed its work on Overlook Trail that connects into the extensive community-wide trail system of more than 20+ miles.  Also, the City of Goodyear and West Valley Trails Alliance completed Phase II of the bicycle “pump track” located within Estrella, one of the hottest trends for cycling enthusiasts.
