Draft Recommendations: Bicycle parks

Kids in SE Portland get their first taste of off-road cycling.

At Hamllik Park in Washougal, Washington, young riders navigate the different features of the off-road cycling skills park.

Bicycle parks such as pump tracks, jump parks and skill trails, are places for people of all riding abilities to practice their riding skills and have fun. These parks can include trails, dirt or concrete tracks, and features like rocks, logs and “skinny” bridges. They can be built on a portion of a property or around the edges. Bicycle parks can be as small as 2,500 square feet or as large as an acre or more in size. However, they can only be located in developed parks, not in natural areas. 

Existing locations

Portland has three bicycle parks where you can ride now: Gateway Green, the Ventura Park Pump Track, and the New Columbia Bicycle Skills Park. The Draft Plan recommends improvements at these parks.
