Hit the bike park with the family! Here are 4 options kids and parents will love

A bike park is a great way to get outside.

Utah’s landscape is transforming as bike parks and pump tracks become new spots for family fun. There’s something there for all skill levels, all ages, and the cities have done a great job of making these bike parks work for whole families.

Kyra Free shares four bike parks in Utah to take the family to.


Safety and Etiquette

Etiquette is simple: be mindful of others on the trails. Be aware of where they are, what they’re doing, and keep your safety in mind. “You’re going to want a helmet, elbow pads, knee pads…. I would say bring more gear than you think you’re going to need,” Kira recommended.

Assess your child’s bike to make sure it’s in good condition and at a proper height before you go. “When you get there and the kids see that bike park, they’re going to want to get going,” Kira emphasized.

Local Favorites

Centennial Park Pump Track

Located at the corner of 5600 West and 3100 South in West Valley, kids love this track for its bridges over water and fun tunnels.

Juniper Canyon Bike Park

Situated in Herriman, this park is a hit with kids, offering giant tire tracks and cool structures and architecture to ride through.

Day Ranch Bike Park

In Bluffdale, this park is adjacent to a skate park and playground, making it a great spot for a full day of activity.

Draper Cycle Park

This park has great views, and is  more of a dirt trail experience. It’s in a pretty spot, and is a great option for the whole family.
