Proposed Pump Track and Skills Zone in Birchwood Park

We need your help!!  The WMBC and Birchwood Neighborhood Association are fundraising to build a Pump Track and skills area in Birchwood Park.  The estimated construction would be Spring 2020 and the cost is $50,000.

What are Pump Tracks?

  • Manmade closed circuits with rollers in between and berms at each end.

  • Designed to be ridden without pedaling.

  • A full-body workout, riders use their body to pump—or push down into the dip after an elevation and pull up before the crest of a mound—throughout the continuous loop.


Why Birchwood Park?

  • Ideal pump track location.

  • Flat topography with plenty of light.

  • Easily accessed by small children and parents – Bay to Baker Trail.

  • Safe for kids and buffered by open space.

  • The field location is used sparingly by park goers.

  • Easy Parking and access from Squalicum Creek Park.

What are the Benefits?

  • Pump tracks are fun for riders of all ages and abilities.

  • Birchwood Park is easily accessible from various neighborhoods (King Mountain, Lettered Streets, Birchwood, Columbia, Cornwall).

  • Families already ride to Squalicum park using the Bay to Baker Trail, making the use consistent with the park today.

  • 2 popular mountain bike clubs at Alderwood and Birchwood Elementaries.
