The new BIKE PARK was designed and built specifically for mountain bikers, but is suitable for BMX riders that desire to hone their bike handling skills, increase their confidence and to progress to new skill levels for just about anything that a trail can throw at you. The Bike Park is located at the end of County Park Rd.
