Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District’s Board of Directors has approved a project to construct a youth oriented pump track within the current footprint of the Fair Oaks Bike Park at Phoenix Park. The project was proposed by a local non-profit, Family Freeride, that is dedicated to creating opportunities to get kids on bikes.
The pump track was designed with the help of professional services and was constructed from dirt. The goal of its design was to incorporate the existing elements of the bike park while adding additional features for the public to enjoy.
Thanks to Family Freeride and the Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District Board of Directors, an additional $25,000 was supplied to the Bike Park Pump Track project in order to install an irrigation system (in order to maintain the form of the track and perform maintenance) and a gate so as to close the park during inclement weather to prevent damage to the dirt track.
At this stage in construction, the irrigation has been installed by District Staff. Staff is currently awaiting the final quotes from local companies to fabricate and install the rolling gate at the front of the park.
