|As Season Nears Park Activity Picks Up|
Aug 14th to Nov 30th|
J. D. Hamel Park, just across Gulfstream Avenue, is getting its dark green sheen back after heavy use during the winter season. Upcoming events are mostly participants oriented, meaning GST residents won't be run out of the sanctity of their homes with bookings such as Thunder By The Bay. Be forewarned, this is a raucous four-day gathering of hundreds of motorcyclists, usually in mid-January. Following are the earlier, less invasive, events, all either in the park or stated otherwise.
