Why a Bike Park?
In a 2018 public survey with over 2,000 Wood County respondents, 43.48% of people requested more bike trails & increased access, with 55% of those respondents requesting non-traditional biking opportunities. The Rudolph Bike Park meets these identified community needs. The Rudolph Bike Park is adjacent to the 13.1-mile rails-to-trails bike path, the Slippery Elm Trail (SET). With an average of 275 users per day, the SET is one of the Park District’s most utilized amenities. Working with the non-profit group, The Right Direction, and their youth development program, the Wood County Park District has taken steps to ensure the bike park offers engaging challenges appropriate for all users, from the strider-biking toddler to the expert BMX racer. Additional amenities include a picnic shelter, accessible parking area, greenspace, and bike repair station.
