North Houston Bike Park encompasses more than 22 acres, centrally located between Downtown Houston, The Woodlands, and Kingwood, Texas. The Greater Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority hired OJB to design this one-of-a-kind, world-class bike park following the completion of the ten-acre North Houston Skate Park which lies directly to the north. The creation of this area has already provided a benefit to the local community and impacted development in the neighboring region.
The focus for the North Houston Bike Park is to provide something for everybody, whether it's novice or expert riders, visitors, or spectators. Programming for the park will include a BMX track, a welcome center, 25,000 SF of concrete bike bowls, a performance pavilion with large event lawn, an urban riding plaza, large and small pump tracks, a tot track, a dirt jumps track, and off-road trails with break-out areas for various skill work.
In order to accommodate the anticipated audience that comes with an Olympic-level event, TRUEGRID PRO PLUS was used in the construction of 175,000 sf of 100% permeable parking lots - an addition that helped the project remain true to budget estimates.
