Mountain bike enthusiasts will soon have a new place to enjoy their hobbies in the City of Orlando. Earlier this week Orlando City Council approved efforts to use grant money to develop and maintain a mountain bike park that will feature a pump track and trails through the woods. The park is located in the Coytown neighborhood of District 4, at the former Orlando Naval Training Center property, now owned by the City and commonly known as "Area C."

These improvements will be created by the Orlando Community & Youth Trust, using a grant awarded to it by the Winter Park Health Foundation, as well as volunteer labor coordinated by the City's Parks’ Division and an experienced mountain biking organization, the Ocala Mountain Bike Association, Inc. (OMBA), which has an active membership group in Orlando. The park is tentatively scheduled to open in the late Summer/early Fall of 2012.

This park land was acquired through the Federal Lands to Parks Program of the United States Department of the Interior National Park Service. This location at the corner of Coy Drive and Jamie Circle is currently closed to the public. Plans are underway to transform this former Navy base property into a mountain bike park at a date to be determined.

Final Design Concept

As of 6/22/2012 The Pump Track Section has been installed and the rest of the work should be underway soon. We will do our best to keep this updated but for the most up to date info check out the Orlando Mountain Bike Club's Facebook page.
