Deputy Director Steve Hammack provided the welcome and provided an overviewof the project. The concept is to design and build an all inclusive bike park thatserves all ages, abilities and disciplines.
The Bike Park concept stemmed from a year long project (Lake CunninghamConcept Team) conducted by City Staff, Council District 8 staff and LakeCunningham Regional Park partners to identify projects and programs that wouldmake Lake Cunningham Regional Park 100% cost recovery and the City’s ActionSports Park.
The Bike Park Project was the first element the City was undertaking as a result of the Lake Cunningham Concept Team’s Recommendations.
This project is in alignment with Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services goalto promote healthy lifestyle and to prevent obesity.
Valmont Bike Park in Colorado is the standard of which San Jose intends to build.
