We are excited to announce that we can begin construction on Phase 3 of the bike park starting July 13!
This phase will the new Expert Line which will have 7 wood ramp jumps ranging from 4-6 feet in height. The Expert Line will be a step up from the current Advanced Line in both size and skill level.
We will also be reworking the Beginner and Intermediate lines. The last table jumps will be replaced with wood ramps allowing for a more consistent progression from one line to the other.
We will also be making other modifications around the park, as well.
Obviously, this is a big project and will encompass most of the park, so we will have to shut down for about 3 weeks.
Thank you again to every one that contributed to the park. Your donations allowed us to speed up the start date so that we can have the park done before the end of the summer.
We will update frequently as the construction progresses.
We love the bike park! Also glad new work to improve will be done. Just wish the work to improve would be done after school in Conejo starts again. Shutting down for 3 weeks, gives kids 2 weeks left before school starts. Right now there are not too many activities for kids to do, because of COVID. Many other parks and ball fields are being closed due to “refurbishment” earlier than scheduled online matrix, leaving kids stuck inside for summer. Wish you would reconsider reworking the bike park until mid August, when school is back in session.
Thank you for your positive feedback! We love hearing that people are enjoying the park…and it is our goal to make it fun for everyone.
We understand that the timing of this project is not ideal…but more importantly, we understand how frustrating and inconvenient this will be with all of the other external restrictions that are in place, right now. Unfortunately, the logistics of a project like this have a lot of moving parts, and we had to schedule the different pieces when we were able to get everything lined up. The primary builders are traveling from Santa Cruz over the weekend. They specialize in bike parks..and are very hard to book, which caused us to block them months in advance. In addition, we had to coordinate their availability with the GC and ramp delivery/construction which made it difficult to plan any other time.
With that said, the rest of the Sapwi Community park will be open and should not be affected by our project. The main hiking/biking path will remain open, including the side bike feature opposite of the main bike park. Outside of biking, the rest of the community park still offers hiking and disk golf. Within a 5 minute drive from the park, there are multiple trails that are perfect for biking and hiking.
Here is a quick reference to all the other things open in the area :What is open in CRPD?
Again, we understand that closing the park for three weeks may cause some frustration. It is not our intention to inconvenience any of the bike park users. We want this project done as quickly as possible, as well.
We will keep everyone updated as the construction continues. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out.
