Whether you’re an intermediate or expert, the jumps have been created to build riders’ skills as they progress through the jumps.

An upgraded pump track is still in place for beginners to build their skills.

The price tag on the park upgrades cost $60,000 which includes updated park signage, tree planting, irrigation improvements, garbage bins and demolition of the old wooden structures.
