The City and our consultant, Hilride Progression Development Group, will be leading a volunteer training and several work parties starting this June to complete the project by mid-August 2014. A grand opening celebration is being planned for September 2014.

Training, tools, food and snacks by Clif Bar and others will be provided at all volunteer events.

Youth and adults are welcome, as well as service groups.

Experienced builder or not, there are lots of ways to help out. Sign up to volunteer as a Trail Crew Leader, a Trail Builder or a Support Volunteer.

Trail Stewards will also be needed to help maintain the park after it’s built.

Project Description:

The Redmond Bike Park is designed to be a place for local BMX and mountain bike riders of all ages and skill levels to practice and develop their riding skills and a save and controlled environment. The Bike Park will be located south of Hartman Park where unsanctioned dirt jumps have existed for years. The design of the park is a result of an extensive public involvement effort, which included the local youth and adult riders, professional bike park designers and Parks Staff. The project will be built and maintained with a significant amount of volunteer labor under the oversight of the Parks and Recreation Department. Read more about the project’s background and history on the Background page.

The design consists of three trails with a progression from beginner to advanced, including a pump track that can be ridden by people of all skill levels. There will also be a perimeter multi-use trail that will be great for walking that circumnavigates the jump trails.

You can have a look at or download the full set of construction plans at the Document Library page.
