We're adding a bike park to our list of park amenities at Sweetwater Summit Regional Park. Designed in collaboration with the cyclist community, the park will offer a variety of trails and special features to appeal to riders of all skill levels.
The bike park is the first of its kind for the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation, and a welcome addition to an already bustling regional park - known for its camping, hiking, splash pad, sports and picnic opportunities.
A groundbreaking event was held Thursday, May 9. Watch the video.
Slated to open winter 2019, Sweetwater Bike Park will be free and open to all ages. Sponsorships are available! Put your name on a venue that's sure to draw local attention.
Sweetwater Bike Park will be equipped with: Four jump lines, ranging from beginner to expert, a jump track, a kid’s pump track, a skill zone, two flow trails, a perimeter trail that connects to those different features, and an entry plaza – perfect for meet-ups and special events.
The park was designed with the community in mind – three public meetings were held, in addition to 10 outreach events with local businesses that drew well over a 100 people – on top of the hundreds who have engaged via social media.
This park is a perfect example of the County’s Live Well initiative, to support a healthy, safe and thriving community. Riders of all ages will get a workout as they fine-tune their skills on a variety on increasingly challenging attractions.
San Diego Mountain Biking Association (SDMBA) was instrumental in helping us forge new connections with the mountain biking community, and Child Development Associates (CDA) stepped in with monetary support to cover a portion of the kids pump track. The San Diego County Parks Society aided in the receipt of those funds and will continue to assist with future bike park donations. Mountain bike teams at Eastlake and South Bay high schools provided invaluable feedback on park amenities.
