Yes, That is the area, several years ago our city fathers gave us permission to fly there. Electric only, no glow (noise) needed to have an AMA license. Then about a year ago one city father came out and informed us that half of the area that we were flying on was soon to be a dog park, won't that be great. But, that when the dog park was finished that we could return to flying on the unused other half, but you can't drive to that location you have to walk it in. We kinda put it together that God help us if someone put a plane in the dog park, so for the most part we have stayed away. The property originally was the parking lot (all asphalt) for the city garbage trucks I would guess 5 acres of pavement. Then they brought in 2-3 feet of fill dirt to construct the park and fenced us out for almost a year. I have never been back.
