Open house event at site of soon-to-be-built Sunnyside Bike Park
  
Media and members of the public are invited to an on-site "open house" to see concept drawings, provide input and ask questions about plans for a future Sunnyside Bike Park.

The City of Toronto has commissioned Jay Hoots, one of the most experienced bike park designers in North America, to design the bike park in Toronto's western beaches area. When built, Sunnyside Bike Park will run parallel to the north side of Lake Shore Boulevard, between Colborne Lodge Road and Ellis Avenue.

Date: Thursday, June 21
Time: 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Sunnyside Bike Park site, 3 Ellis Ave. (Lake Shore Boulevard West at Ellis Avenue)

Hoots's design will create a bike park that offers progressively difficult challenges and opportunities for building skills in off-road cycling. The proposed facility, which could be built as soon as this fall, will include a skills trail, pump tracks, a variety of jump lines and a large drop-and-wall ride. Amenities such as picnic tables will also make this park an attractive destination for families and people who have yet to try off-road cycling.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
