Pump Track news!

It's time for a pump track update! We've gone from this -

to this -

in just four weeks! Thanks to all of our JORBA and local volunteers, both adults and kids, we're already moving on to planting grass and plants! We are so grateful for everyone for their support - there's no way we'd be here without the help of our awesome friends and neighbors!

We're gearing up for some fun times, but first - join us on Sunday, September 23, at noon for Pump Track 101 ! A chance to learn a little bit about the right and wrong way to ride a pump track, as well as some tips for getting around cleaner and smoother. Whether you have young kids, or maybe just haven't ridden that BMX bike in a decade or so - come join us and sharpen your skillz! Rain will cancel - if you are unsure, check the blog, or our Facebook or Twitter page before you come out!

As for the celebrating - yep, we're ready for a party! So mark October 21 on your calendar - it's the official Grand Opening of the West Milford Family Pump Track! We'll be in celebration mode from 12-4 p.m. - come on by and see how we do it! More details to come - so stay tuned!
