Bike Skills Park, Petawawa

The new Petawawa Civic Centre Bike Park, aptly themed as the “Construction Yard”, is opened June 29th, 2013 The park offers off-road cycle enthusiasts a variety of riding experiences professionally designed by Jay Hoots of Hoots Inc. The bike park is currently the only one of its kind in Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. Featuring a beginner’s course, skills area, multi-level jumps, pump tracks and wall ride, this park has been designed to offer riders a progression in their riding experience while using the park.

Built out of good-old Petawawa community pride and spirit, the Civic Centre Bike Park has been a community driven and funded project from the start. The cycle facility was constructed with the assistance of Town staff and funding from the Town of Petawawa, the Petawawa Civic Centre Fundraising Committee and a dozen local businesses and community partners. The construction process was also facilitated through a significant in-kind contribution from RGT Clouthier Construction Ltd. thus allowing the vision of a state-of-the-art bike park to become reality. The bike park was constructed with the professional guidance of Hoots Inc. With over 50 bike courses across North America to his credit, Jay Hoots and his staff guided Town staff, volunteers and partners through the build process. A month in the making, the bike park utilizes large rocks, tractor tires, tall timbers, rough cut lumber and truckloads of granular materials to form and shape the features within the park.

The bike park offers residents and visitors to Petawawa a new outdoor recreational venue to enjoy. Planning for the development of this outdoor facility is steeped in the Town’s strategic planning processes. Focused on strategic goals that includes “healthy and active lifestyles”, “leisure service diversification” and “back to nature”, the bike park offers an all-natural opportunity for residents and visitors of all ages to get outdoors and be active. Riding the surging popularity of off-road cycling in society today, the bike park is sure to excite local and out of town enthusiasts while offering newcomers an opportunity to try a new sport.
