There’s a new mountain bike dirt park and pump track opening in Williamsburg in a former abandoned lot across from the Domino Sugar factory. Two Trees Management Company won a proposal to utilizing the sugar plant’s, site E and turn it into a multi use park, spearheaded by Williamsburg resident Bobby Redd.
According to the blog of theNYC Mountain Bike Association (NYCMTB) from May, 2013…
“What is currently a vacant 55,000-square-foot lot on Kent Avenue between South 3rd and South 4th Streets will be transformed by two independent operators into a neighborhood destination with a community farm, bilingual reading room, community green space, family-friendly bike courses, affordable food and goods from local vendors and a variety of seasonal programming, including kids days, yoga classes, and hands-on urban farming classes.”
The bike side of the park will be run by nearby shop: Ride Brooklyn (34 North 7th-Williamsburg) and a new mountain bike club: www.BKMTB.com, which is listed as a meetup. The park will also have assistance by the NYCMTB which has had a steady history of successfully revitalizing NYC urban space for mountain bike use.
The BKMTB next event will be July 14th at the Lippman Park Mountain Bike Festival.
