Thank you for dropping by.

We are in the process of designing the proposed Railway Bike Park at the junction of Railway and Granville Avenues, just off the Railway Greenway, in the Thompson neighbourhood. The future bike skills park is intended to be a gateway for beginner and intermediate riders looking to learn and enhance their bike handling skills. We’re planning what we think will be an exciting mix of different and challenging obstacles, features and a pump track for Richmond’s cycling community. We’d love to hear what you think and get your input on the design process!

Please review the materials on this page, become familiar with the options we're presenting and complete the survey below. The survey will be open until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, March 28, 2021.


Background

The Garden City Park Bike Terrain Park was constructed in 2014 with ramps, hills, jumps of various types and heights, pump tracks for beginning and advanced riders, balancing elements and a viewing area for spectators. It was designed to appeal to riders of all ages and skill levels, and includes features that offer a range of graduated challenges.

Over the years, the park has enjoyed increasing use and has become a very popular destination. The City has identified a need to provide a new bike park to service beginner riders before they “move up” to the Bike Terrain Park. The proposed Railway Bike Park will focus on new riders by providing a diverse mix of terrain and features to learn the skills necessary to take on bigger challenges.

Three Options

We are providing three conceptual design options for the proposed Railway Bike Park. Please review the three concepts and tell us what you think:


The Consultation Process

Give us your feedback
Click on the survey below and provide your input about the park. What have we done well and/or could improve in the three concepts? If you had to pick one concept, which is your favourite and why?

Bike Park Ideas
Visit the IDEAS tab and let us know what you would like to see in the bike park by uploading a photo or sketch and your comments.

Virtual Public Open House
If you would like to attend the virtual public open house on Wednesday, March 10 from 7:00-8:00 p.m., please email us at parks@richmond.ca and put “Railway Bike Park Open House” in the subject line. We will send you a link to the meeting.

At the meeting, you will meet the Parks and Hoots design team, hear more about the project and review the three concepts with the designers. We hope there will be lots of interesting conversation and this becomes a great idea-generating event.


What’s Next?

After the public input period closes on March 28, Parks Planning staff will review the concepts and comments we’ve received with the Hoots team. A final concept will be presented for review and comments.

We hope to begin construction / break ground in early summer. Our goal is to have the Bike Park open this summer.
