Local families that do their share of bicycling will likely tell you how fortunate we are to have kilometres upon kilometres of interconnected pathways and trails to all corners of the city.
Less talked about and buried within a small sort of urban forest in the city’s South End is a great and more challenging way for young kiddos to put their cycling skills to use.
Within an area that of size somewhere in the neighborhood of a small city block are a series of small trails, hills and jumps that make for a great way to put a kiddo’s command of their bike to the test. It amounts to a nice stepping stone to a more involved off-road outing such as the Brandon Hills.
I had a chance to shoot a few quick 360 interactive pics on a recent family stop-in and have included them below in a little bit of a tour. Make sure to strap on your helmet first, then click/tap on the arrows within the image to "jump" to the next scene :)
Signage posted on-site advises that adult supervision is recommended.
The bike park is considered a part of the larger Kin Park, which has an address of 1651 3rd Street. With splash pad, a beach volleyball court and fair-sized playground directly across the street, Kin Park itself counts as one of the more unheralded greenspaces in the city.
