    What is a Family Bike Park?

    A family bike park is a dirt surfaced, trail network with technical features professionally designed to facilitate bicycle skill development among children and youth, such as balancing, braking, cornering, jumping, handling and more. In particular, a family bike park provides a fun and safe place for children as young as two years old to learn to ride a bike, increase their ability and confidence, and develop a love for the sport.

    Questions? Please contact PARC manager Dan Ovington:
    250-537-4448 or dovington@crd.bc.ca
