Ventura Park Pump Track opens in Northeast PortlandOriginally posted on July 16, 2012 at 12:25 pm
Portland Design Works and the Northwest Trail Alliance recently to announce the grand opening of the Ventura Park Pump Track in Northeast Portland. The facility is the latest effort by the NWTA to increase access to and awareness for mountain biking in the Portland region. Late last year PDW donated $4,500 to the NWTA and Portland Parks and Recreation to pay for construction of the track.
“We hope to build on the success of this project to create more opportunities for mountain biking in Portland,” said Erik Olson, co-founder of PDW. “We’re proud to work with the Northwest Trail Alliance and we’re happy that the track has been supported by the Hazelwood Neighborhood.”
The Ventura Park Pump Track is a pilot program built in cooperation with the Portland Department of Parks And Recreation and has been used extensively by neighborhood children since the initial construction phase finished last fall.
PDW supports the NWTA as a member of 1% For the Planet, a global group of over one thousand companies that donate 1% of their sales to nearly two thousand environmental and advocacy organizations.
Portland Design Works is a manufacturer of bicycle accessories and was founded in 2008.
