I was talking to the security guard,he said it should be done in 2 months.

Once it's all done, there will be the jump park with a beginner, intermediate and expert jumps, the pump track and a short MTB skills trail that goes around it all. The skills trail will be a combination of wood and natural obstacles. There will also be a multi-use trail that will snake around the entire lower area.

It should be pretty cool, once it's done.

I don't know jack bout jump lines, but my untrain eye tells me they're going to need a little " refinement " on the 2 bigger ones.

Wow, that is pretty incedible! Can I still wear my lycra XC kit on the pumptrack, or is that frowned upon by the cool kids :nono:

Kudos to the folks that worked hard getting this in place :thumbsup:

BTW, there is a pump track being built next to the Whitney Ranch pool as well. The City of Henderson built a BMX track with some skills obstacles as well. Don't think it's open yet, but keep your ears open.

They're moving along. Hoping for mid-late Nov completion.
You could check on the Henderson Parks & Rec site.

I haven't been keeping tabs cuz I won't be able to get a dirt jumper til Feb-Mar:(

Where is this in Henderson and what is it geared toward?
It's at Arroyo Grande Park, off of arroyo grande between Santiago & Warm Springs.

All ages literally. From 3 year olds on striders to pro's and every one in between.

Funny you should ask as I made it out there for my first time this weekend. Unfortunately, no video and it's pretty dramatically different from the pictures posted here. There's essentially one asphalt pump track, and three main jump lines in increasing sizes. The smallest jump line and corresponding return line/rhythm section is now asphalt and reportedly the other jump lines will be eventually. I had a good time, and look forward to returning.

I searched youtube for "Arroyo Grande BMX" and found a few hits. Here's a recent one for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27HPVF6ay0U . There's even more asphalt now than the video i linked to above.
