2007 BEST OF PHOENIX AWARD WINNER!
"...it's because...cycle psychos have been pulling sick stunts at the stellar Chandler Bike Park ...
(a) pedal-pusher's paradise."
Phoenix New Times
"This is probably the best park I've ever ridden... and I've been around."
AJ Anaya, Denver, Colorado
"We all have our biases, but any sane rider would agree that this park has to be in the conversation of 'best park in the US.' Personally, it's a done deal ... Chandler has the best bike park in the entire United States ... There are no ripples, everything is perfect."
Why have a BMX park?
BMX/freestyle biking is a relatively new sport that continues to grow in popularity. This 25,000-sq.-ft. facility gives the youths of Chandler and other Arizona communities an alternative riding place to business districts, school grounds, canal banks, dirt lots and other unconventional locations. They can learn their sport, develop their skills, and share a camaraderie with fellow BMX/freestyle bikers. This project was developed with considerations for safety, to be economically feasible, and to not adversely impact any nearby residents.
Bike Park Conceptual Design & Construction
The design is the result of many months of work among City staff, architects and a focus group comprised of Chandler residents, plus design and amenity suggestions offered at previous public meetings. Cost: approximately $750,000 to design and build. The Chandler Bike Grind Park was designed by Site Design Group, Inc., which designed and built the Chandler Skatepark at the Snedigar Sportsplex in 2000.
