    I was talking to the security guard,he said it should be done in 2 months.
    The jumps in the last pic are 7'-8' tall and about 12' apart. Thats freakin huge!

    Once it's all done, there will be the jump park with a beginner, intermediate and expert jumps, the pump track and a short MTB skills trail that goes around it all. The skills trail will be a combination of wood and natural obstacles. There will also be a multi-use trail that will snake around the entire lower area.

    It should be pretty cool, once it's done.

    Wow, that is pretty incedible! Can I still wear my lycra XC kit on the pumptrack, or is that frowned upon by the cool kids

    Kudos to the folks that worked hard getting this in place

    BTW, there is a pump track being built next to the Whitney Ranch pool as well. The City of Henderson built a BMX track with some skills obstacles as well. Don't think it's open yet, but keep your ears open.

    They're moving along. Hoping for mid-late Nov completion.
    You could check on the Henderson Parks & Rec site.

    I haven't been keeping tabs cuz I won't be able to get a dirt jumper til Feb-Mar

    It's at Arroyo Grande Park, off of arroyo grande between Santiago & Warm Springs.

    All ages literally. From 3 year olds on striders to pro's and every one in between.
