Ventura Park is home to Portland Parks & Recreation’s first pump track! 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.

Historical Information
In 2017, Ventura Park’s playground was fully renovated, including the addition of new accessibility features, with funding from the 2014 Parks Replacement Bond. A Portland Loo was installed with funds from the Bond and System Development Charges. RACC installed a series of three public art sculptures called the Venturia Trio (The Imp, Twine, and Sprung) by Portland artist Pete Beeman.
