Program for March 16
Dirt World Bike Park, Richmond, CA
Dirt World is a 2-acre public bicycle terrain park currently under development on the Richmond Greenway just East of Unity Park. Designed for mountain bikes and BMX bikes, the park will feature jumps, obstacles and multiple pump tracks for riders of all skill levels at this exciting new neighborhood park. Located on a regional trail and just a few blocks from a BART station, Dirt World will be the largest bike skills park in the East Bay, providing much-needed infrastructure for local bikers. The park is also an innovative brownfield remediation project combining urban greening, public art, environmental justice and a community-build approach to create a unique recreational opportunity in the Iron Triangle Neighborhood, improving access and equity in one of the most disadvantaged communities in the state.

Construction of Phase I will begin March 12 (weather permitting), and Dirt World is seeking contributions to help reach the $30,000 construction budget as well as participation and support in the Phase 2 community-build portion of the project to construct other park amenities later this year.
