OC Parks and the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) have partnered on a project to plan and design a bike facility at Craig Regional Park in Fullerton through an IMBA-led Bike Park Initiative Grant with matching County funds. Funding will be used to create a design-development plan and report for the proposed facility.
The Bike Park Initiative Grant is an IMBA-led project designed to foster the development of world-class bike park facilities across the country. In early 2014, OC Parks initiated a study with the IMBA Trail Solutions program to determine the feasibility of hosting bike park activities in Orange County and to explore creating facilities within OC Parks. Several existing county regional park locations were considered in a draft study. Craig Regional Park was selected as the most feasible due to the proposed site location, size, topography, and proximity of amenities.
The proposed project involves creating a non-motorized bike facility for all ages, abilities, and skill level. The project area is approximately 10 acres and is located at the southernmost part of Craig Regional Park.
The bike facility will feature a variety of trail designs (i.e., pump tracks, dirt jump areas, slope style courses and loop trails) for various ages, abilities, and skill levels. It will also include picnic tables, rest areas, signage/info kiosk, stormwater retention and bioswale structures.
OC Parks is currently in the process of regulatory review by US Army Corps of Engineers. The final design (plans, specs and estimates) phase is anticipated in winter 2018/19 and, subject to available financing, construction is anticipated in 2020. We will update this page as the project progresses.
