The Town has a number of planning projects on-the-go as we continue to grow and continue to plan for long-term sustainable growth. Below are just a few of the projects the Town is working on.
Last year, representatives from The Town of Penhold and The Penhold & District Optimist Club teamed up to form a committee committed to bringing a Pumptrack and Skatepark to Penhold. Construction on this exciting new recreational space will begin in May of 2021 and be completed by the fall of 2021.
The collaborative project will bring a modified version of the long anticipated skatepark become a reality along with a pumptrack feature to create a Multi-Use All-Wheel Park (MAP) south of the Penhold Regional Multiplex.
What is a pump track?
It’s a closed loop track with rolling bumps, banked corners and berms (swoopy, banked turns) for biking, rollerblading and scooters. They are designed to maximize momentum so users can ride the pump track with minimal exertion. Pump tracks are a perfect structure for practising balance, learning skills and improving confidence.
The skatepark portion of the Penhold MAP will include seven (7) features:
- bank ramp
- slappy rail
- manual pad
- flat rail
- flat ledge
- quarter pipe extension
- quarter pipe transition
