Ventura Park is home to Portland Parks & Recreation’s first pumptrack!
What is a pump track?

A pump track is a continuous dirt loop that can be ridden on a bicycle without the need for pedaling. Pump tracks have banked turns and rolling hills to maintain momentum.

This pilot, or demonstration project, was built and is being maintained by the Northwest Trail Alliance (NWTA) under a formal agreement with Portland Parks & Recreation.

The site is being monitored carefully during the ongoing trial period. PP&R is looking for continued good stewardship and community support.

The track is not designed for skateboarders or BMX riders.

Wading Pool Update
PP&R has closed its wading pools for health and safety reasons, as required by new State of Oregon regulations. In 2002, an inventory and assessment of wading pools was completed. Based on those recommendations, as well as input from maintenance and planning staff, PP&R has identified 17 wading pools for replacement and 7 for elimination. Please read the FAQ for more information.
