New Santa Cruz Bike Park

Hey BMXers & freeriders, Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation now has a new Bike Park! Thanks also to the Bicycle Trip for funding the park. Some features include a bowed 8' high wall ride and 2' and 4' jumps.

Its right across the street from the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf (35 Pacific Avenue). Its open from 9 a.m. to sunset daily and all bike riders must wear a helmet and safety pads. Skateboarders, in-line skaters and scooters are not allowed in the Bike Park. The Bike Park will be closed during rainy or wet conditions.

Eventually a Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center will be built on this site, and the bike park may be moved to a permanent location. The descision depends on the city parks department.
