Green River Bike Park May Become BMX Track

Green River Bike Park May Become BMX Track

GREEN RIVER — Southwest Wyoming BMX (SWBMX) is seeking Green River City Council approval to operate an outdoor BMX track at the current bike park in Green River.

The Green River City Council will meet Tuesday, October 5, at 7 p.m. at Green River City Hall to discuss the possibility.

According to Green River City Council agenda documents, the existing bike park located within Stratton-Myers Park was built over 10 years ago and has run its course. With reductions in staff in the Green River Parks and Recreation Department, the bike park is only able to receive minimal maintenance.

SWBMX is currently seeking an area to operate an outdoor BMX track in Sweetwater County as their outdoor track was eliminated when the Sweetwater Event’s Complex expanded the parking area, the documents state.

Therefore, SWBMX is looking to lease the land of the bike park to build and operate a track as well as operate and maintain a dirt pump track, open to the public, outside of the leased area.

The documents state the operation of the BMX track will provide another recreational opportunity to the Citizens of Green River and has the potential to stimulate local business with tourism during the SWBMX events which have a regional draw.
