New public bike park for Toronto

13 03 2014

In terms of riding spots and parks, Toronto seems to get the most attention for it’s indoor bike park, Joyride 150 (and the crazy edits it spawns).

However, that may be changing this year.

At the recent Toronto BMX Jam, I learned that the city of Toronto is planning a new outdoor public bike park that is set to open this summer!

According to the City of Toronto website, the Sunnyside Bike Park will feature: a skills trail, pumptracks, a wide variety of jump lines and a wall ride.

And, to keep it family friendly…benches, picnic tables, and drinking fountains are going to be added as well.

This is in addition to the Centennial Park BMX Park also under construction  just outside of Toronto. This facility is  scheduled to be completed this year and used as a venue for BMX racing portion of the 2015 Pan American Games.

I have my fingers crossed that the track will live on after the games as permanent track for the Toronto area (it would certainly be a lot closer commute than my current “local” track).

I’m so looking forward to the ribbon-cutting ceremonies of these two bike parks.

C’mon summer!
