Meridian Township Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce the grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of a bicycle pump track in Eastgate Park, 4023 S. Meridian Road, Okemos on Wednesday, June 30 at 6:00pm. A bicycle pump track is a continuous loop that you can ride by “pumping” over rollers and berms. “This is the first track of its kind in Meridian Township and unique to all of our other park amenities,” stated LuAnn Maisner, Director of Parks and Recreation. “Even though the pump track will undoubtedly attract the teen and tween population, I foresee this activity involving entire families.”
This pump track was funded and constructed by volunteers from the Michigan Mountain Biking Association (MMBA) who live in our community. The grand opening is an opportunity to learn first hand how to ride and maneuver the track. Bring your bicycles to experience it first hand. “Denny’s Central Park Bicycles” and “Bikeworks” will provide a small number of trial bikes and helmets for use and the Meridian Township Police Department will be on site to register bikes and discuss bicycle safety.
Mark your calendars and join us as we celebrate and thank our local volunteers for their efforts in creating a park feature that the entire community can enjoy! Hot dogs and lemonade will be served following the ribbon cutting. Visit the Parks and Recreation website or call 853-4600 for more information.
