Fitchburg BMX Park

Organization: City of Fitchburg, MA

Year: 2006

Amount: 5000

Status: Project complete

Type: BMX

Address: Joubert Skate Park, Beech St., Fitchburg, MA

The City of Fitchburg received $5,000 to help build a BMX park next to the existing Joubert Skate Park. Conflict between skaters and BMXers at the skate park caused the city to evaluate its options for pleasing both parties, and planners deemed separate facilities to be the best solution. Our funding enabled the City include a bank ramp and kicker in the park's design, making the facility more exciting for BMX riders.
