Richmond Bike Park: FINAL SPRINT

$16,532 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 129 people in 10 months

July 22, 2018 

Success! Dirt World Bike Park is now open.

Located in the heart of Richmond, California, our 2.1-acre park features four jump lines, a BMX track, and a pump track.

Richmond is a tough urban community -- about 20 percent of the population lives below the poverty line -- with a shortage of recreational space for youths and families. The site of our park used to be a neglected lot full head-high weeds and trash. 

With your help, we've transformed it into a place of fun and positivity -- the weekends have been buzzing with BMX and MTB riders of all skill levels and we recently hosted summer camp with Bay Area BMXers. We see our efforts as one step towards making our city a healthier, more vibrant place for everyone. 

You can see an awesome video of the park here  and learn more about Dirt World in this story  from the San Jose Mercury News. 

Now we're asking for your financial support to make major improvements to the park: better riding surfaces, asphalt turns for the tracks, permanent signage, seating and tables, etc. And we still need to pay off some of our outstanding construction bills. If you can make a donation, please do. This is an all-volunteer effort.

We are on the Richmond Greenway, between 20th and 23rd streets, and Chanslor and Ohio avenues. The McVittie Post Office Annex is a good landmark.

See you in the dirt!

We're about ten days away from opening! Yeeeaah! Construction is almost complete -- and that's thanks to all the amazing people who've contributed to the park.

We'll be sharing all the details about opening day soon, but in the meantime we want to thank all our supporters.

And if you have friends who haven't donated, please spread the word -- we're still trying to pull together a few thousand more dollars to cover our final construction costs.

Thanks again,

Dirt World crew
