Bike Park

The City of Cambridge has created a bmx bike park within Riverside Park, the City's largest community park that spans some 102 hectares. It's a $150,000 initiative that also includes funding support from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport through its "Healthy Community Fund".

The ministry grant helped to cover the design costs for the recreational project. Locally based IBI Group which specializes in land-use planning and urban design was selected to execute the design concepts created by City staff. The area of the park was previously used for a petting zoo that closed in 2007.

Hours of Operation - 7 a.m. until Dusk, weather permitting

Please note: the park is closed for a minimum of 24 hours after a rainfall to allow the track to dry out.

Helmets MUST be worn in the Cambridge Bike Park. Elbow, knee, and wrist guards are strongly recommended.

Riverside Bike Park - located within Riverside Park at 1850 Rogers Drive
Riverside Bike Park offers an advanced section along with an intermediate section and a pump track. In the event of rain the park may be closed to ensure the park is not damaged through riding on wet surfaces. Each section is identified through the use of signs.

Additional Cambridge Bike Parks
  • Sawmill Park Bike Pump Track - located within Sawmill Park at 80 Timber Creek Crescent.

Note: A pump track is a looping trail system of dirt berms and �rollers� (smooth dirt mounds for pumping) for bicycling without the rider pedaling. The name comes from the pumping motion used by the cyclist's upper and lower body as they ride around the track. The purpose of a pump track is to use this pumping motion to maintain speed around the track without pedaling.

Cambridge Basketball Courts
Located at 500 Preston Parkway
