Help Fort Collins Build a VeloPark!
Several years ago, a small group of people imagined a park in Fort Collins where children could learn to ride, families could ride together, people of all ages could work on their cycling skills, individuals could exercise and train, and world-class athletes would come to race. We are getting closer to that dream.
Our goal is to develop a world-class VeloPark to support all types of cycling for education, recreation, fitness, competition, tourism, and events. The VeloPark will benefit not only cyclists of all ages but also businesses, youth organizations, schools, bike clubs, and the community at large.
The VeloPark could include:
- Kids’ Safety Town
- 1 KM criterium course
- BMX, Mountain bike and cyclocross courses
- “Pedal-Power” Play ground
- Permanent concessions
- Access to bike paths
Building this park will require collaboration, partnerships and involvement on your part. Now is your chance to help us determine which features are most important for this park. Collecting your information is a key to getting started on a formal park proposal.
We need your input by Friday, March 1st 2013, to move forward to create this proposal in partnership with the City of Fort Collins. We also plan to develop private-sector partnerships to accelerate development of this park.
