This little BMX track has made an otherwise quiet park come alive. It's 2 mins ride from my house and I see it from my bedroom window. My step daughter is now in the club and I'm down many an evening and weekend on my just purchased BMX (first one).

I love it. It has four lanes and each one has its technical challenges. They have fitted a neat track into a compact space. You spend an hour and still won't be bored.

Come grab your BMX and give it a go.

Good Points
It is fantastic to have a track like this in the local community. We have spent several afternoons there this week with our daughter and it is great to see children (and adults) having so much fun.
Bad Points
It's not a bad point but it would be great to have flood lights on the tracks so the track can be used at night and during the darker evenings
Would you recommend?
