The Rudolph Bike Park has not officially opened and is closed to the public for the time being. The Wood County Park District is working hard to facilitate the finalization of the space and features so we can open the park to the public. We look forward to inviting our community to a grand opening to see and experience the Rudolph Bike Park. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate the support of our community.
