Western Park in Leicester has a bit of everything: BMX circuit, a large range of table tops lines, berms, drops, and a pump track. 

Not really cross country although you will be able to ride some of the lines and the pump track. A good place to practice jumping and hang out.

Trails built by volunteers on Council land, legal and not demolished since 2001.

Directions

  • Western Park Hinckley Road, Leicester. Off the A47 Hinckley Road, next to the main entrance to Western Park. From the Eco House Carpark head into the park past the blue sign board, the trails are up the hill on the left. The nearest side road is Western Park Road. Grid Ref 52.633467, -1.176095

Great little spot

I came here whilst passing through the area. It's in a big reasonably central urban park a bit tucked away. It has lots of really progressive jump lines for all levels and all ages. It is addictive, fun and the locals are really friendly and happy to give good advice. Nice vibe!

Choice riding, choice scene.

Hit the berm on the pump track at full speed (death grip) coming off the fence line. Total g force whips you round there. Sic. Transfers on the tabletop line are mint too.
So many lines all with a short push back up.
