As part of the Issaquah Highlands development, the developer, Port Blakely, donated funds for the construction of an introductory skills bike park at Central Park.
Central Park's site development plan identifies a limited area for this amenity located near fields 3 and 4 under the BPA power lines and just north of the Central Park - Falls Drive trail.
The City is partnering with the Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance to help make this long awaited amenity a reality in 2020. As the local experts in mountain bike facilities, they are providing their design expertise for this introductory skill building bike park at Central Park.
In 2018, three concepts were presented to the community via an online survey and at a public meeting held at Blakely Hall. Both efforts generated valuable input and feedback that was used to create a preliminary design for the bike park.
Issaquah is now seeking grant funding to build the park. The City is working with our partner, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance, to finalize design, permitting and other preparations this year, so that Issaquah is prepared to start construction once full funding for the project is secured.
