 Hell ya. The spacing and progression he builds in is spot on. A Hoots Built Park is a Good Park !

 I agree and cost wise it is so cheap compared to what a skate park or ball diamond costs to build.

 @d-man: skateparks are better though. Concrete lasts for decades.

 @warehouse: i would not say they are better, just a different option that costs minimum 100,000. A dirt park can be built for 20,000.

 @warehouse: skate parks around here are where the douche bags hang out and they like to smash glass bottles everywhere plus the bikers don't like the skaters so they tend to throw handfuls of pebbles all over. It's ridiculous how kids these days have no respect for anything.

 @mhoshal: fortunately that kinda BS doesn't exist around here. Maybe the parks are good enough that everyone is too busy riding to f*ck with each other? Maybe the high scooter count has brought skaters and bikers together. Bottom line, those hoots parks look pretty mediocre and even a mediocre skatepark ages better.

 @d-man: Don't forget to add in the cost of the land the park is built on.

 Great work Jay Hoots. Not to be a downer but the problem with pretty much all of these parks is that the municipalities that they get built in don't understand the required maintenance to keep them rideable and fun. These parks need to get hardwired into the municipal annual budgets or the get weeded out and blow away.

 There should be more Jay Hoots in every town

 I will start this off by saying that any bike park is a great thing for the community in general. I am just curious as to when this video was shot, as I was in Moose Jaw 2 months ago and the park was an overgrown grass land and clearly not loved by the local riders. Why invest so much and not maintain the facility, hate all you want, just my 2 cents.

 This is pretty standard for Jay Hoots parks

 Hoots parks get a bad rap for not being "sustainable".

 The builders of Invergarry bike park in Surrey did a fantastic job. There's actual potential for rider progression and most importantly, there's lines to keep experienced riders entertained. Without lines for skilled riders the park is destined to fall into disrepair as they're the ones doing the maintaining. I can't think of any Jay Hoots park in the lower mainland worth riding and have only heard the same opinion from others.

 This is common, municipalities don't understand it takes some maintenance. Same goes for local riders, put some effort in to keep your park in good shape.

 yea the hope bike park is the poster child for what your saying the big table top line had something like 12 jumps on it and was great the opening week. i came up 3 weeks later and their were holes in just about every lip. visited a year later and it looked like first 3 jumps were the only one that had been even semi taken care of.

 I hope the one near me comes along before I come along. They're planning it apparently, and there's already an awesome one east of the city, but it's a ways to drive.

 Sunnyside in Toronto is a well maintained bike park. I've been there a whole bunch of times since it opened in 2014 Big thanks to all those responsible for keeping eveything mint

 Hey there Jay! I'm watching this video about 100 feet from where I hear you'll be building a pump track in Nordegg. We are looking forward to it! Any word on when this might be?

 Looks like a fun park. I'm glad the people forced by circumstance to live in a place like that get this kind of thing now and then.

 what's wrong with Moose Jaw "a place like that"?

its just a little flat thats all.
  • 3 0
 @RoverDover: So true. I have lived in lots of "places like that" and people love their communities, and couldn't imagine living elsewhere. They also think that its crazy to spend 10k on a bike without a motor.... Different strokes for different folks.
