Mountain Shadows Bike Park & Pump Track
Update: March 24, 2023
Construction to Begin at Mountain Shadows Pump Track and Bike Park
Beginning Monday, March 27, 2023, the contractor for the new Pump Track and Bike Park in Mountain Shadows will begin site prep, including site clearing, dirt, and drainage work.
Phase 1: Pump Track
Once the site work is complete, the contractor will begin Phase 1 of the park. This will include the construction of the asphalt pump track. Work is expected to take 5 to 6 weeks, depending on the weather. During this construction phase, work hours will be from 7 am to 7 pm, Monday- Friday. With no weekend work scheduled.
The rest of the park will remain open to the public, but the construction area will be closed. Pedestrians and bicyclists are urged to follow any caution signs and avoid the work area as best as possible. Phase 1 is expected to be finished by the end of May. Once completed, that area of the new park will be open to the public.
Phase 2: Bike Park
Phase 2 of the Pump Track and Bike Park is scheduled to start at the end of July and is expected to take 4 weeks. More information about the timing of Phase 2 will be shared this summer.
The Town anticipates having a ribbon cutting for the completed Pump Track and Bike Park in September.
In 2022, the Board of Trustees approved a contract to design and construct a Pump Track and Bike Park in the Mountain Shadows subdivision, just south of the Mountain Shadows Park. In the 2023 Capital Improvement Projects budget, Phase 2 of the Pump Track and Bike Park was approved, which includes the dirt bike park portion. During the February 8, 2023 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a change order to the original contract approved in May of 2022, to include the design and construction of Phase 2. With this approval, both phases of the park will be constructed at once. Work is anticipated to begin this spring.
The Mountain Shadows pump track, and bike park will allow cyclists of all ages to develop skills for off-road biking. The layout will utilize a mixture of asphalt and dirt pathways, intersections, and turns to allow riders to develop various ways of traversing the track. The park's paths and obstacles will provide playgrounds and training facilities for bikers, skateboarders, or scooter riders at any skill level.
