New skills park for youth riders to be unveiled during Haw Creek Bike Fest event

 

Forsyth County Parks & Recreation will be opening a bike skills park at Haw Creek Park (2205 Echols Road) on Saturday, Oct. 27 as part of the Haw Creek Bike Fest. The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include bike skills clinics, prizes, local bike vendors and free food.

 

The bike skills park is an area designed specifically for riders between the ages of 3-11 and features a pump track, tot track and technical trail features that are found on most mountain biking trails. Families are invited to bring their bikes to enjoy the skills park and existing trails.

 

“We look forward to offering this unique amenity at Haw Creek Park,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jim Pryor. “It will provide a fun and safe place for children to improve their biking skills.”

 

The bike skills park was funded by SPLOST VII funds as well as a donation from the Forsyth County Parks Foundation made in honor of Daniel Brunick. During the Haw Creek Bike Fest, the Forsyth County Parks Foundation will be unveiling a plaque in memory of Mr. Brunick.

 

“This is a great example of how the parks foundation can support park projects as well as help families leave a legacy in the community,” said President of the Forsyth County Parks Foundation Kristin Morrissey. “We look forward to being at the event to share in the fun.”

 

In addition to the bike skills park, Haw Creek Park features a nature inspired playground, a picnic pavilion, and a 3.2 mile multi-purpose trail for walking, running and mountain biking. For more information, visit parks.forsythco.com or call (770) 781-2215.
