Come out and bring the kids to the newest addition to Falling Creek Park. 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.
