The Edge BMX Track

Subfacility of The Edge Visitor Center

Image Unavailable
The Edge track is 900 feet of challenges and fun. The "U" inside the "V" layout design guarantees a natural flow into the 1st corner. A rhythm section from corner to corner in the third straightaway and ten different jumps to complete adds to the excitement. The feature section of the track is the second corner where a slope was created from the highest point of the track to ground level, so riders will turn while going downhill. The first straightaway consists of a double, roller and table step up to a step up; the second straightaway consists of a double, triple and a huge step up with three consecutive doubles in the fourth straightaway to finish out the track.

The track is unlighted, and restroom access and water fountains are available on the east side of the youth center.

Rules

 
  • Human-powered, BMX-style bikes are welcome — nothing else is.
  • Protective gear on the rider (helmets and knee, elbow and wrist pads and gloves) and on the bike (crossbar, handle bar and gooseneck pads) is strongly recommended. Avoid being on a first-name basis with the emergency room.
  • Pegs don’t belong on a BMX track bike. Remove them for your own and others' safety.
  • Help keep the track in good condition. No riding during wet or extremely muddy conditions. Check for and clear debris before riding. Call Allen Parks and Recreation to report any problems at 214.509.4700.
  • Check bad behaviors at the gate, including foul language, tobacco and alcohol use or anything else that might get you in trouble.
  • Please enjoy your snacks and drinks outside of the track area.
  • To our younger users: Make sure the adult that brought you stays with you.
  • Take care of your track, and it will give you hours of fun!
  • In case of an emergency, call 9-1-1.
