This new park has a pump track, which is a way of biking in which riders use their momentum to continue through a series of dirt berms and turns with rollers in between. In the picture below, viewers can check out how the track flows.

Dellavalle and his design crew, as well as many volunteers, worked many hours to complete the first phase of the project, which is called the pump track.

There are actually three phases of construction in the park.Ai??Workers are currently getting ready to work on stage two. This stage is going to be the skills park, where riders can get better at technique and skill before moving to more dangerous obstacles.

The third phase of the park is going to be for more advanced skilled riders who want to test their riding abilities. Riders will be able to jump like they have never jumped before. There is no other local park which provides riders the opportunity to challenge themselves this way.
