The transformation of midtown’s Gregory Park is now complete.
Crews recently finished construction of a series of new singletrack mountain biking trails, along with a pump track and skills course at the 19-acre park on Sycamore Street just west of North College Avenue.
The land was donated to the city by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in 1964. It includes a pavilion and a picnic area. Before the new construction, it included a 0.6-mile nature trail that had been damaged in several places from erosion.
The pump track and skills course are both located in the north part of the park along Sycamore Street.
The trails include Morning Light, a multi-use loop that circles the outer edges of the park and is used to access the two new one-way trails that start at the top of the hill; Rolling Thunder, a downhill-only, beginner-level flow trail; and Tailwind, a downhill-only, intermediate-level flow trail.
We’ve got a short video above, and some photos below. Enjoy.
