What is a Bike Park?
A bike park is a dedicated space that is purpose built for bike related activities that allow new and experienced bikers to hone their skills.

Bike parks usually consist of one or more of the following elements: bicycle playgrounds, pump tracks, jump lines, skills courses, and trails.
Bike parks appeal to a wide range of riders and provide family-friendly recreation while helping foster a community atmosphere in a unique outdoor setting.
