  • Pump Track is currently being constructed at the entry of the park. What is a Pump Track, you ask?

A pump track is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by riders "pumping"—generating momentum by up and down body movements, instead of pedaling or pushing. It was originally designed for the mountain bike and BMX scene, and now is also used by skateboards, in-line skates, scooters and is accessible to wheelchairs. Use of motorized vehicles/devices are not permitted on the track. Pump tracks are relatively simple to use and cater to a wide variety of rider skill levels.
