A survey is now available for community members to share their feedback and ideas on the new bike skills park being designed for Crystal Lake Park.

The survey is hosted by the consultant, Cabin Resource Management, and available at surveymonkey.com/r/GPBikePark. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and is open until Tuesday, May 4.

The survey is comprised of three parts:

  1. A presentation of preliminary design concepts based on industry trends, feedback from the project team, and the physical and environmental properties of the site
  2. Multiple choice questions regarding demographics, riding experience and riding preferences
  3. Ranking and multiple choice questions on the park features and elements

A bike skills park offers a space where riders of all levels can practice and hone their skills. It typically contains a variety of skill testing biking features, such as dirt jumps, pumptracks, rocks, and wooden bridges, that are suitable for all skill levels and allow riders to learn and progress.

Riders of all ages, experience and skill levels are encouraged to share their feedback to help design the park in a way that best suits community needs.

Background

The City of Grande Prairie announced the addition of a new Bike Skills Park in Crystal Lake Park as part of its efforts to create additional outdoor recreation amenities in the north sector of the city and encourage an active outdoor lifestyle in the community.

The Bike Skills Park at Crystal Lake is funded through the ICIP-Covid-19 Resilience Stream. This project is being undertaken by Cabin Resource Management with support from Brent Harley and Associates. The project team is engaged with Alberta Environment to understand the environmental values that will influence and shape the bike skills park design. The park is anticipated to be fully operational by the Fall of 2021.
