On Saturday, October 21, the new pump track opens at Flood Park. Shaded by towering redwood trees, the paved circuit of rollers and banked turns provides a new recreational opportunity for those on bicycles, skateboards, and scooters, who can ride the track solely by “pumping”—generating momentum by up and down body movements—instead of pedaling or pushing.
Completion of the pump track is part of Phase 1 construction for the Realize Flood Park project. Flood Park will remain open until large-scale construction begins in 2024. More Info at County Parks Website.
