Steinbach's Mayor and Council have officially opened the new BMX Track at A.D. Penner Park! The new 900 foot track has some impressive features including a starting hill, four 180 degree turns, and roller and double jumps.
The track construction was approved by Council for 2016, however due to weather conditions, the project was delayed until this year. The track cost approximately $30,000 with $10,000 from the Provincial government through the Community Places Program.
The track will be open to the public during regular park hours. Please note this is an unsupervised facility and users do so at their own risk. Exercising caution and use of appropriate safety equipment are both recommended.
Grab your bike and check it out - great riding for everyone!
